Riyadh’s newly opened embassy in Baghdad has been reportedly targeted by a rocket attack following the execution of Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

On Sunday, RT’s Ruptly video agency released footage from the incident in Iraq’s capital city, showing helicopters circling the building and smoke rising from where the missile struck.

Saudi Arabia executed Nimr and 46 others on Saturday, in a move which drew international outcry and censure.

The embassy was reopened on Friday after being closed since 1990, when former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, promoting Riyadh to cut ties with Baghdad.
