The recent mass execution in Saudi Arabia continues to spur reactions in the region and at the UN in New York.

On Saturday the Kingdom announced that it had executed 47 prisoners, including a prominent Shia cleric, on terrorism-related charges.

The incident sparked violent protests in Iran and has led to a break in diplomatic relations between the two countries.
