Protests have broken out after Saudi Arabia announced the execution of Shia religious leader Nimr al-Nimr and 46 others on terrorism charges.
Reports say Iranian protesters broke into the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran after Riyadh made the executions public.
Saudi interior ministry said those convicted had plotted or participated in attacks against residential compounds and government buildings.
Nimr, who led anti-government protests in the country’s east, was previously convicted of sedition, disobedience and bearing arms. Nimr did not deny the political charges against him, but said he never carried weapons or called for violence.
