Spokesman Andreas Angelides said Friday that police have an "an individual in custody on possible charges pertaining to terrorism laws."


Angelides declined to identify the suspect, the level of his involvement in the plot and what the intended target would have been, saying disclosure of any details about the case could compromise an ongoing investigation.


State radio CyBC quoted an unidentified senior police official as saying that "Israeli interests" in the southern coastal town of Limassol were to be targeted. CyBC said the suspect was arrested a week ago.


An official at the Israeli Embassy in Nicosia refused to comment on the matter.


Less than two weeks ago Kenyan authorities arrested two Iranians who are suspected of planning attacks against Israeli, Saudi and American interests in the African country.


The two were in possession of explosives at the time of their arrest.
