Saudi Arabia is continuing to sever ties with Iran, now making moves against tourism and trade.
Saudi Arabia announced Monday evening that all flights to Iran will be cut, and Saudi citizens are banned from travelling to Iran for any reason. Commercial relations are also ending, with businesses pulling out of Iran, according to Reuters.
After Saudi authorities executed prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr on Saturday, Iranians protested by burning the Saudi embassy and consulate in Iran.
Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Sudan have all severed diplomatic ties with Iran in the wake of the violence.
At this time, Saudi Arabia will still allow Iranian pilgrims to enter the country for Hajj.
