TEHRAN, Jan. 6 -- Hundreds of thousands of Iranians in Tehran on Monday mourned the assassination of senior general Qassem Soleimani.

Qassem Soleimani, the former commander of the Quds Force of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was killed in a U.S. raid in Iraq's capital Baghdad on Friday.

The black-clad mourners flooded to the Enghelab (Revolution) and Azadi (Liberty) streets to pay their tribute to Soleimani.

The mourners were shouting anti-U.S. slogans in rage and carrying placards calling for "immediate departure" of U.S. forces from the region.
