BEIRUT - Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah condemned the execution in Saudi Arabia of a prominent Shi'ite cleric, saying the death of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr could "not be taken lightly."

"We are today faced by an appalling event, a huge event that Al Saud took lightly... but this is an event that cannot be taken lightly," Nasrallah said in a speech broadcast live on the Lebanese Shi'ite group's Al Manar television.
