Bahrain security forces arrested a number of suspected militants ahead of a planned attack and confiscated weapons and explosives that had come from Iran, the interior ministry said on its official Twitter on Monday.


The ministry described them as "linked with terrorist groups in Iran" and said they were "plotting terrorist operations against security and civil peace".


Last year, Bahrain said it had foiled a terrorist attack backed by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps.
