Group linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq claims embassy bombs

“A militant group linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq has claimed responsibility for suicide car bombings aimed at embassies in Iraq which killed 41 people, a group that monitors insurgent communications said.

Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) said in a message posted on jihadist Internet forums that it was behind attacks on Sunday at the Iranian, Egyptian and German missions, the U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group said late on Thursday. The attacks also wounded more than 200 people.

The group denied playing a role in explosions at seven residential buildings in Baghdad two days after the embassy bombings, SITE said. Those blasts killed at least 35 people and wounded more than 100. “
