KUWAIT (Reuters) - Kuwait said on Tuesday it had foiled an Al Qaeda-linked plan to bomb a US Army camp and other "important facilities" in the OPEC oil exporting state. An Interior Ministry statement said all six members of the Al Qaeda-linked cell had confessed after being arrested. It did not say if the targeted facilities included oil industry plants in Kuwait, the world's fourth-largest oil exporter. "The state security has uncovered a terrorist network following Al-Qaeda, and includes six (Kuwaiti) citizens who have planned to carry out a plan to bomb Arifjan Camp, the state security building and other important facilities," the Ministry said. Camp Arifjan is located south of Kuwait and serves as a staging ground for forces deploying in Iraq. Kuwait, the launch pad for the 2003 US-led war on Iraq which ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, remains a logistics base for the US army to support its troops in Iraq. Al-Qaeda has waged attacks in the Gulf Arab state in recent years but a crackdown by governments in the region has succeeded in preventing fresh violence, such as bombings of foreign housing complexes and oil sites in several Gulf Arab states including Saudi Arabia.
