DOHA - Djibouti cut its diplomatic relations with Iran on Wednesday, Saudi-owned al-Arabiya news channel said, quoting an official source.

Saudi Arabia severed its own ties with Shi'te Iran on Sunday after protesters stormed its embassy in Tehran in an escalating row between the rival Middle East powers over Riyadh's execution of a Shi'ite Muslim cleric.

Fellow Gulf Cooperation Council member Bahrain has also cut ties with Iran and Kuwait has recalled its envoy to Iran.
