Plot against kingdom foiled: Bahrain king

world Updated: Mar 21, 2011 12:35 IST

Bahrain's King bin Isa Al Khalifa said a foreign plot against his kingdom had been foiled and thanked troops brought in from neighbouring countries to help end increasing unrest after weeks of protests.

"An external plot has been fomented for 20 to 30 years until the ground was ripe for subversive designs ... I here announce the failure of the fomented plot," he was quoted as saying in a report issued by the state news agency BNA overnight.
