This Middle East expert explains what Iran's next moves could be amid tensions with the US.

Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, the leader of the elite Quds force, was killed in a targeted strike by US military drones in the early hours of Friday at Baghdad International Airport.

Middle East commentator Sami Hamdi said that President Trump ordered the death as a response to the US embassy being attacked by Iran-backed militia days before.

The President is "humiliated" by the attack on the embassy, said Mr Hamdi, and Iran are "embarrassed" by the assassination.
