Jordan says authorities have arrested 11 suspected al-Qaida-linked militants for allegedly planning to attack shopping malls and Western diplomatic missions in the country.

Government spokesman Sameeh Maaytah says the suspects are all Jordanian and are in police custody.

He said the men had brought in arms from neighboring Syria to use them in the alleged plot. He also said al-Qaida operatives based in Iraq have been assisting the suspects with manufacturing home-made explosives.

He said Sunday that Jordanian intelligence agents arrested the suspects in the past few days.
