Kuwait says it has recalled its ambassador to Iran over attacks on Saudi diplomatic missions in the Islamic Republic, Associated Press reported.

The move comes after Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic ties to Iran over the storming of two diplomatic posts in the country following the kingdom's execution of a top Shiite cleric who was also an opposition figure.

Several Saudi allies followed the kingdom's lead and Jan.4 scaled back or cut diplomatic ties to Iran.

Saudi Arabia executed Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr Jan.2 along with 46 others convicted on terror charges, including three other Shiite dissidents and a number of al-Qaida militants.

Al-Nimr was an outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia's Sunni monarchy but denied ever calling for violence. His execution has sparked outrage among Shiites across the region.
