White House Says Iran’s Raisi Had Blood on His Hands

 – Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday, had “blood on his hands” for supporting extremist groups in the region, the White House said on Monday.

White House national security spokesperson John Kirby told reporters that the United States will continue to hold Iran accountable for what he called destabilizing activity in the region.

“No question this was a man who had a lot of blood on his hands,” Kirby said.
