PM calls for de-escalation of US-Iran hostilities
He is setting Britain up as a mediator between the United States and a more cautious Europe. Boris Johnson has warned Iran not to attempt "retaliation or reprisals" against America following the assassination of its top general. In his first intervention in the crisis, the Prime Minister said he would be speaking to "all sides" to urge calm and de-escalation. It came as three rockets landed near the US embassy in Baghdad last night. Earlier, Iran warned of "severe revenge" for the killing of Qassim Soleimani.

Here is everything you need to know about how the leadership election works and who can vote.
