Iran's top leader Khamenei leads prayers amid crisis

Jan 17, 2020 16:35 IST

Iran's supreme leader delivered a Friday sermon in Tehran for the first time since 2012, as the country grapples with the fallout from the killing of its top general and popular anger at its accidental shootdown of a Ukrainian plane. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last delivered a sermon in February 2012, when he called Israel a 'cancerous tumour' and vowed to support anyone confronting it. Khamenei also warned against any US strikes on Iran over its nuclear programme, saying the US would be damaged '10 times over'.
