UNITED NATIONS - The UN General Assembly on Friday condemned an alleged plot to kill Saudi Arabia's envoy to the United States and urged Iran to obey international law.

The Saudi-crafted resolution said the 193-nation assembly "deplores the plot to assassinate the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States of America."

It did not blame Iran for the alleged assassination plan but urged Tehran "to comply with all of its obligations under international law."

There were 106 votes in favor, nine against and 40 abstentions.
