Tehran, Jan. 13 – An Iranian agent was arrested in Kuwait in connection with the latest spate of Al-Qaeda-related attacks in the Middle East.

Sawa Radio reported that the unnamed individual was arrested by Kuwaiti security forces after recent intelligence implicated him as a cell in communication with the Al-Qaeda network with prior information on the attacks in Saudi Arabia.

Three days ago, two Kuwaiti security forces were killed and two more were injured following street-battles with suspected Al-Qaeda operatives, according to the Kuwaiti Interior Ministry.

Since the incident, Kuwaiti intelligence and security forces have been on heightened alert, cracking down on agents working for or conspiring with the Al-Qaeda network.
