Saudi authorities arrested a group of suspects accused of links to al Qaeda in Riyadh, the Interior Ministry said in a statement on state news agency SPA on Sunday.

"After intense surveillance of the cell it was revealed that they have reached an advanced stage in their plan to implement their goals, which include preparing and setting explosives and testing them outside of Riyadh," the ministry said.

Security forces arrested six members of the cell - all Yemeni nationals - after arresting their leader, a Saudi, and questioning him, the statement said.

Saudi Arabia has arrested thousands of suspects since the 2003-2006 attacks on residential compounds for foreign workers and on Saudi government facilities, killing dozens.
