Saudi Arabia has declared that it will cut air traffic to Iran, according to the foreign minister.
The escalating diplomatic row comes after a night of violence in Iran’s capital, Tehran, where a furious mob petrol bombed the Saudi embassy (pictured) in protest to al-Nimr’s killing. The Saudi Arabian embassy was set alight by members of the crowd, who threw petrol bombs into the building
The move comes amid escalating tensions triggered by Saudi execution of Shiite cleric and 47 other in a beheading binge.
