CAIRO: Sudan has decided to expel the Iranian ambassador in protest at an attack on Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Tehran, Saudi state television station Ekhbariya reported on Monday.

Saudi Arabia cut ties with regional rival Iran on Sunday after Iranian protesters attacked its mission there, angered by the Sunni Muslim kingdom’s decision to execute a leading Shi’ite cleric.

Sudanese officials could not immediately be reached for confirmation.
