Forty extremists charged with attempting to overthrow the Emirati regime are linked to Syrian militants and have smuggled in weapons for attacks, a court heard Monday.

The defendants include 38 Emiratis, the English-language Gulf News daily reported in its online version, without giving other nationalities.

The trial of the group known as Al-Manara opened in August at the state security court in Abu Dhabi, but the international press is barred from attending.

The group smuggled in weapons, ammunition and detonators "obtained in collaboration with Syria's Al Nusra Front", an Al-Qaeda affiliate, as well as militants in Iran, witnesses told the court, quoted in the daily.

They said the suspects planned to overthrow the government, assassinate leaders, attack malls and hotels and to declare an "Islamic state" in the Gulf country.

The trial was adjourned to December 8.

Authorities reported their arrest on August 2 and prosecutors immediately leveled the accusations against them and said they would face trial.
