Iran Bans Saudi Imports

Iran has banned the import of goods from Saudi Arabia after the kingdom cut diplomatic ties over attacks on the Saudi embassy following the execution of Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr.

According to Associated Press, annual imports from Saudi Arabia total about $60 million, and consisted mostly of packing materials and textiles.

Iran has also discontinued the Umrah pilgrimage until further notice.
