Iran denounces Al Saud crackdown on Saudi protesters | PressTV

Iran has strongly denounced the detention of a prominent Shia cleric and the brutal crackdown of anti-regime protesters in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, which has been a major scene of protests over the past months.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast on Tuesday voiced Tehran’s deep concerns over acts of violence against clerics and the brutal suppression of anti-government protest rallies in the region, which has left several people killed and wounded.

Mehmanparast stressed that Riyadh must heed the people’s legitimate demands and stop the use of force against the protesters.
