TUNBRIDGE WELLS, UNITED KINGDOM (AFP) - In quintessentially conservative Tunbridge Wells in south-east England, residents are living up to the town's caricatured reputation for perpetual indignation. This time, the source of their disgust is the government's coronavirus approach when a national lockdown ends next week.

State television showed several high-ranking Iranian officials, including Defence Minister Amir Hatami and Revolutionary Guards chief Hossein Salami, at the funeral of Dr Fakhrizadeh, whose coffin was covered in the Iranian flag.

The funeral got underway with a religious singer praising Dr Fakhrizadeh and alluding to the martyrdom Imam Hossein, revered 7th century holy figure from whom Shiite Muslims draw inspiration. A large display showed a picture of Dr Fakhrizadeh next to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as well as former top general Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a January air strike by the United States in Baghdad. The funeral was not open to the public in order to maintain health protocols over the novel coronavirus pandemic, according to the defence ministry. As part
