European stocks closed lower on Friday as geopolitical tensions spiked after U.S. airstrikes in Iraq killed a top Iranian military commander.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 closed was down 0.4% at 418.03. Travel and autos stocks led the losses while oil and gas shares rose over 1% on the back of renewed unrest in the Middle East.

Iranian Major-General Qasem Soleimani, head of Tehran’s elite Quds Force, was killed early on Friday by a U.S. airstrike on his convoy at Baghdad airport.
