Some 300 Iranians protested in front of the Suadi consulate in Tehran on Saturday amid tensions between the two countries over influence in Yemen and reports of abuse against two Iranian pilgrims visiting Saudi Arabia, Iran's Fars News Agency reported.

The demonstrators chanted anti-regime slogans as they called for the embassy to be shut down and for justice to those alleging abuse.

They also urged Iranian pilgrims to stop visiting Saudi Arabia, which houses Islam's holiest sites, Mecca and Medina.

Protestors clashed with police forces during the demonstration which lasted four hours.
