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.
