U.S. calls Iran's $3million reward to kill Trump "ridiculous"

GENEVA (Reuters) - A U.S. envoy on Tuesday called an Iranian lawmaker’s offer of a $3 million (2.3 million pounds) reward to anyone who killed U.S. President Donald Trump “ridiculous” and said it pointed to the “terrorist underpinnings” of the Iranian government.

“It’s just ridiculous but it gives you a sense of the terrorist underpinnings of that regime and that regime needs to change its behaviour,” Robert Wood, U.S. disarmament ambassador, told reporters in Geneva.
