Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila led thousands of devotees in prayers for peace as tensions mount between the United States and Iran following the assassination of a top Iranian general, reported CBCP News.

Soleimani was instrumental in Iran’s foreign policy in the Middle East over the last decade and was the commander of the Quds Force, the elite overseas arm of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps.
