Fox News Radio's JESSICA GOLLOHER (Live from Jerusalem) Iran Cuts Ties to Saudi Arabia after Executions Tehran had heavily criticized the Sunni-ruled kingdom, with Iran's supreme leader saying Saudi politicians will face "divine vengeance" over the killing of Nimr al Nimr. He was put to death in Saudi Arabia along with 46 other prisoners on Saturday. Protesters in the Iranian capital attacked the Saudi embassy with petrol bombs in the wake of the executions. Sectarian anger was also enflamed in eastern parts of Saudi, with hundreds of Shia Muslims marching through the streets. Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said: "The unjustly spilled blood of this oppressed martyr will no doubt soon show its effect and divine vengeance will befall Saudi politicians." US officials had urged the Saudi government and other Middle Eastern leaders to "redouble efforts aimed at de-escalating tensions". Al Nimr, 56, was a driving force behind anti-government protests in Saudi during the Arab Spring of 2011 and Riyadh has insisted that the death penalties were part of a justified war on terrorism.
