DUBAI - United Arab Emirates has detained at least four Emirati Islamists after saying it was investigating a foreign-linked group planning "crimes against the security of the state", relatives and activists said on Monday.

Family members said those detained included Mohammed al-Mansouri, head of the Islamist group al-Islah (Reform), which has been the target of a crackdown in the UAE.

"My father was arrested this morning around 11:30 in the souk in (northern emirate) Ras al-Khaimah," said Mansouri's son Hassan, adding he did not know his father's current whereabouts.

Interior Ministry officials were not available for comment.
