DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday Saudi Arabia cannot hide "its crime" of executing a Shi'ite Muslim cleric by cutting ties with Tehran, warning that discord could affect the fight against terrorism.

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Sudan broke all ties with Iran and the United Arab Emirates downgraded its relations on Monday after the Saudi embassy in Tehran was stormed by protesters. Kuwait recalled its ambassador to Iran on Tuesday.

An angry mob broke into the embassy on Saturday night and started fires following protests against the kingdom's execution of cleric Nimr al-Nimr, a prominent critic of Saudi policy, and three other Shi'ites as well as 43 Sunni al Qaeda jihadists.
