Iranian police has reportedly arrested 40 people who raided the Saudi embassy on Saturday night, and a judicial order was issued to identify and arrest others involved.

Iranian protesters against the execution of a Shiite 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 Shi'ite leader Nimr al-Nimr and 46 others 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 strongly condemned the execution of Nimr al-Nimr.
