Mourners surround a truck carrying the flag draped coffins of Gen. Qassem Soleimani and his comrades in the holy city of Qom south of the capital Tehran, Iran, Monday, Jan. 6, 2020. The men were killed in a U.S. drone strike on Friday, Jan. 3 in Iraq. The funeral drew a crowd said by police to be in the millions in the Iranian capital, filling thoroughfares and side streets as far as the eye could see.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to hold votes this week to limit President Donald Trump's military action against Iran as tensions escalate in the Middle East following the targeted U.S. assassination of a top Iranian general.

Pelosi's move comes as Minnesota U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar and other Democrats already have jumped ahead with a similar resolution condemning the Trump-ordered killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani and blocking the use of further U.S. military force against Iran without congressional authorization.
