A Saudi diplomat, hurt when his country's embassy in Tehran was ransacked by protesters after Iranian pilgrims were killed during riots in Mecca last month, died Monday night from his injuries, the Saudi Press Agency reported. The agency, monitored by the British Broadcasting Corp., quoted "responsible sources" at the Saudi Foreign Ministry as saying "procrastination and delay" by Iran had prevented the transfer of the diplomat, Moussad Ghamdi, for treatment in Saudi hospitals.

Crowds carrying the bodies of 37 Muslim pilgrims killed in Mecca gathered outside the former U.S Embassy here Monday, chanting slogans against the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel. An estimated 2,000 people brandished banners and black flags as they marched with the bodies from the headquarters of the Martyrs' Foundation, an organization that helps the families of those killed in the Iran-Iraq War, to the former embassy a mile away.

The government here has ordered Iraq, Jordan and Yemen to sharply reduce their embassy staffs in Saudi Arabia, a move that follows a halt in Saudi oil deliveries to Jordan and new restrictions on Yemeni workers in the kingdom.

A Saudi princess living in Irvine was charged Wednesday with human trafficking after a Kenyan woman who worked in her home fled and contacted the police. Orange County prosecutors allege that Meshael Alayban forced the woman to work 16 hours a day, seven days a week, for only $220 a month, despite initial promises of an eight-hour day and higher wages. Alayban kept the domestic worker's passport and documents so she was unable to leave. It's an ugly, troubling story, but it's a familiar one in Saudi Arabia.
