Donald Trump: US ready to strike 52 Iranian sites

Despite calls for de-escalation, Donald Trump has risked increasing tensions with Iran.

The US president has warned he has targeted 52 sites in Iran and is ready to hit them "very fast and very hard" if the country follows through on its plan to take revenge over the killing of its top military general.

The body of Qassam Soleimani has now been returned to Iran.

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson is returning from holiday early to take control of the UK’s response to the crisis.

Sky’s senior correspondent Ian Woods reports from Washington.
