Saudi Arabia Issues 24Hour Ultimatum For Iranian Ambassador To Leave The Country

In what looks to be an escalating diplomatic row between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the Iranian ambassador to Saudi Arabia has been asked to leave the country.

The diplomatic fallout began when Saudi Arabia announced yesterday that it had executed a prominent Shia cleric and 46 others.

Sheikh Nimr al Nimr was a prominent anti government cleric and his execution sparked protests in Iran.
Hundreds of protesters hurled petrol bombs at the Saudi embassy yesterday.

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that Saudi Arabia will face “divine revenge” for their execution of a “matyr”.
