Verdict on Saudi embassy attack carried out: prosecutor

January 29, 2019

TEHRAN – Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi says the verdict against the attackers of the Saudi embassy in Tehran has been carried out, the YJC reported on Tuesday.

Jafari Dolatabadi did not further elaborate on the issue.

In January 2016, a group of protesters stormed the Saudi diplomatic missions in Tehran and Mashhad in protest to the execution of the pro-democracy cleric Nimr al-Nimr.

Saudi Arabia cut ties with Iran after the incident despite the condemnation of the move by the top Iranian leadership. Iranian police also arrested several individuals involved in the attacks.
