After news of his death broke, some Iraqis celebrated in Baghdad’s streets, accusing him of orchestrating violent crackdowns on peaceful pro-democracy protests there in recent months but in Tehran, capital of Iran, hundreds of Iranians took to the streets of Tehran, the country’s capital, to protest the general’s death.
