Iranians storm, set ablaze Saudi embassy

Via Cousin John

Protest against Saudi imprisonment of Shi'ite cleric   Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

Reports from Iran say the Saudi Arabian embassy has been attacked by protesters and set ablaze after Riyadh executed 47 people including a prominent Shia critic of the Saudi regime.

In addition, a Saudi consulate in Mashad was stormed by Iranian protesters and the Saudi flag was reportedly taken down.

The attacks Saturday, just hours after Saudi Arabia executed Nimr al-Nimr, a top Shi’ite cleric along with 46 others in 12 different cities. Some were killed by firing squad, while others were beheaded amid strong protests by the Iranian government.

  2. We have no treaty with any of the players; we have no dog in this fight. Hopefully, this will lead to a mutual extermination.

      But we'll still stick our nose into it and get burnt as usual.

  5. These people know how to protest. Americans can take a lesson.....guess we are too civilized to storm Washington and put the fear of God into the congress critters and the dictator in the white house. The Egyptians turned out by the hundreds of thousands and demonstrated for weeks to oust their Muslim Brotherhood government. Not that I would ever even suggest such a thing because we are a nation of the rule of law, right.
