Several demonstrators have been arrested at the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran, police say, following the Saudi execution of a dissident Shiite cleric.
Video showed smoke billowing out of the Saudi embassy early Sunday, and police report damage at the back of the building.
Cleric Nimr al-Nimr was among 47 people executed by Saudi Arabia on Saturday on terror charges. He had repeatedly spoken out against the government and the Saudi royal family.
