DUBAI - Twenty-one men accused of storming Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran in January appeared in a Tehran court on Monday, Tasnim news agency reported, weeks after President Hassan Rouhani urged the judiciary to take action.

The suspects are accused of "disturbing the public order and damaging embassy buildings", according to Tasnim.

Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic relations with its Shi'ite rival Iran after protesters attacked the kingdom's embassy in Tehran and consulate in Mashhad following Riyadh's execution of a prominent Saudi Shi'ite cleric.
