Iran to Face 'Severe' Consequences if Killed American: Senator


US Senator Tom Cotton on Saturday warned Iran of targeting American citizens, amid reports asserting that Iran-backed IMIS is behind an attack on a military base near Kirkuk, which left a US civilian killed and several others injured.


"If American blood was shed by an Iran-backed group, Tehran ought to face swift and severe consequences," Cotton said.


Numerous attacks were launched against Iraqi military bases where US troops are stationed.
