DUBAI, Jan 7 (Reuters) - The burial of a top Iranian commander killed in a U.S. drone strike last week was postponed on Tuesday due to a stampede in his hometown, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.
The report did not say how long any delay to burying General Qassem Soleimani would last. A report earlier said 35 people were killed in the stampede in his hometown of Kerman. (Reporting by Babak Dehghanpisheh; Editing by Edmund Blair)
