Al Qaeda claims responsibility for failed terror attack

“Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility for the attempted Christmas Day terrorist attack on a plane about to land in the U.S., saying it was in retaliation for alleged U.S. strikes on Yemeni soil.

In the statement, published on radical Islamist Web sites, the group hailed the ‘brother’ who carried out the ‘heroic attack.’ The group said it tested a ‘new kind of explosives’ in the attack, and hailed the fact that the explosives ‘passed through security.'”
