RIYADH (AFP) - Saudi Arabia said Tuesday it had broken up an 11-strong terrorist cell planning attacks and kidnappings and seized guns and ammunition from the group. The members of the terrorist cell - a common govt reference to Al-Qaeda and related groups - were arrested in the southern part of the country near the border with Yemen, Interior Ministry spokesman Gen Mansur al-Turki said. The gang, all Saudis, was planning to attack police installations and undertake kidnappings and robberies to finance their operations, Turki told AFP by telephone. They were almost ready to start with acts against the kingdom, he said. Turki said it was too early to say precisely what their possible links to other groups were. However, he confirmed: They do have relationships to others outside the kingdom. He said they were equipped with small arms, such as pistols and shotguns, and that their planned attacks had been focused on the immediate area in southern Saudi Arabia. They were not arrested at once, but taken one by one, until we were certain we had all of them, he said.
