Anti-war protesters rallied across dozens of cities in the United States and the world Saturday against potential conflict with Iran and to condemn the U.S. killing of top Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

The big picture: Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, an anti-war coalition that helped organize the U.S. events, said on its website that more than 70 rallies took place in the United States. Anti-war demonstrations were also held in countries including Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada, per German news agency DPA.
