More than a million Iranian-Americans live in the U.S., and many have family still living in Iran.

Los Angeles has the largest population outside of Iran, and there's been lots of concern and fears of a war with their home country after last week's assassination of Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with Assal Rad, a research fellow for the National Iranian American Council who is based in Irvine, California, about the reaction to the killing of Soleimani.

This segment aired on January 7, 2020.
