Live: Killed or assassinated? How Western media report Soleimani's killing
Updated 10:18, 10-Jan-2020
The U.S.-Iran conflict is flooding the media after the U.S. killed Iran's top military commander Qasem Soleimani, causing a dramatic escalation in a region that's already fraught with tensions. The U.S. called Soleimani a terrorist, but others are calling the U.S. strike that killed him an act of international terrorism. What's the definition of terrorism and who gets to decide? Where is the line between fighting terrorism and becoming the terrorist? Why does it matter?
