TREASURIES-Yields drop after U.S. kills top Iranian commander

    By Karen Brettell
    NEW YORK, Jan 3 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields fell
sharply on Friday on safety buying after a U.S. air strike
killed Iran Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani, increasing
tensions between the two countries.
    The Pentagon said on Thursday that Soleimani was actively
developing plans to attack Americans in Iraq and the Middle
East.
    Benchmark 10-year note yields were last 1.821%,
after falling as low as 1.795% overnight, which was the lowest
since Dec. 12. They closed at 1.882% on Thursday.
