Kuwaiti police have arrested several suspects belonging to the ISIL armed group believed to be planning attacks across the country, the interior ministry has said.

"Kuwait security agencies have carried out three pre-emptive operations in Kuwait and abroad that led to derailing a number of ISIL plots targeting Kuwait and arresting several ISIL members," an interior ministry statement said on Monday.

Those arrested included 18-year-old Kuwaiti Talal Raja, who was allegedly planning to bomb a Shia mosque and an interior ministry building during Eid holidays, said the ministry statement.

The man allegedly confessed to plotting the attack, and had planned to deploy a suicide vest.
