CAIRO -  Egyptian security forces have uncovered and caught an al-Qaida-linked militant group that was on the verge of carrying out a suicide attack against a foreign embassy in the country, the interior minister said on Saturday.

Mohamed Ibrahim, speaking in a televised news conference, declined to say which embassy had been targeted. He named three suspected members of the cell now under arrest, adding that it was not part of al-Qaida, but linked to it.
