Tehran: Iran police have arrested 40 protesters who raided and torched the Saudi embassy in Tehran, a senior official said on Sunday.

The judiciary has issued order to identify and arrest others who attacked the embassy, Xinhua quoted Tehran's Prosecutor General Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi as saying.

Iranian mobs, protesting the execution of a Shia leader by Saudi Arabia, raided and set fire to the Saudi embassy in Tehran late Saturday.

The move came hours after the Saudi interior ministry announced that prominent Shia leader Nimr al-Nimr and 46 other men were executed on terror charges.

In an announcement on Saturday, Iran's foreign ministry urged the police to protect the diplomatic compounds of Saudi Arabia in the country.

Earlier in the day, Iran's foreign ministry summoned Saudi Arabian charge d'affaires to Tehran and strongly condemned the execution of Nimr al-Nimr. (IANS)
