Saudi Envoy Summoned

The foreign ministry summoned the Saudi chargé d’affaires in Tehran to protest about the reported sexual harassment of two teenage Iranian pilgrims by Jeddah airport officials.
In the absence of the Saudi ambassador to Iran, the country’s chargé d’affaires was summoned to the foreign ministry last week, Press TV quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hassan Qashqavi as saying on Monday.    Qashqavi denounced the airport officials’ actions as a “heinous and inhumane crime.”  He added following the summoning, Saudi officials arrested the two suspects after carrying out investigations, and promised that appropriate measures would be adopted. The airport officials reportedly separated the two Iranians from other members of their group, who were returning from their pilgrimage, and sexually harassed them.
