DUBAI, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Bahrain said on Wednesday it had caught an Iranian-linked cell plotting attacks in the Gulf island kingdom, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV reported, days after both countries cut ties with Iran.

"Bahrain (announces) the apprehension of a terrorist cell linked to the (Iranian) Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah ... the members of the cell plotted bombings in the country," Al Arabiya said. (Reporting by Noah Browning; Editing by Catherine Evans)
