Iraqi President Barham Salih called for restraint on Friday after a US strike killed top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi paramilitary chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis outside Baghdad airport.

"We call on everyone to restrain themselves," Saleh said in a statement, characterising the strike as an "aggression" and saying Iraq would be destabilised if "voices of reason" did not prevail.
