Singapore police denied a Kuwaiti newspaper’s report of a thwarted assassination plot against Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

“The report is untrue. No such incident occurred in Singapore,” the police said in a statement emailed to AFP.

Kuwait’s Al-Jarida newspaper reported Thursday that the Mossad, in cooperation with local authorities in Singapore, prevented an attempt on Barak’s life during a visit this week to the Asian city. The Kuwaiti newspaper reported that three members of a Hezbollah-Iranian cell had been arrested by Singapore authorities.

The newspaper cited what it called high-ranking Israeli defense officials.
