The United Arab Emirates said on Sunday it was investigating a group with international links that was planning "crimes against state security," the state news agency said.

The group "aims to commit crimes against state security and challenge the constitution and basic principles that government in the state is based on," WAM news agency said, adding the group is "subordinate to foreign organizations and agendas."

The protests that have swept four Arab heads of state from office and strengthened the Islamist movement throughout the Middle East have not been seen in the UAE, thanks in part to its cradle-to-grave welfare system.
