Iranians held mass protests Friday across the Islamic Republic, angered by Saudi Arabia's execution of a Shiite sheikh that has enflamed regional tensions between the Mideast rivals.The crisis has seen Saudi Arabia sever ties with Iran after crowds of protesters in Iran attacked two of its diplomatic posts Sunday. Those assaults came after Saudi Arabia executed Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a prominent opposition Shiite scholar, the day before. Iran Thursday claimed that an airstrike from the Arab coalition – which Saudi Arabia is a partner of – in Yemen the previous night had hit the Iranian Embassy in Sanaa, citing Iran's Foreign Ministry.Bahrain, which sided with Saudi Arabia in the kingdom's spat with Iran, has cut diplomatic ties with Tehran.
