Al-Qaeda owns-up to Danish embassy attack in IslamabadJune 5th, 2008 - 8:47 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, June 5 (ANI): The Al-Qaeda today claimed responsibility for the explosion at the Danish Embassy in Islamabad on Monday.
SITE monitoring services said that al-Qaeda in several Internet statements claimed to have carried out a suicide attack on the Danish embassy in Islamabad which left at least six dead.
As quoted in the Dawn, Monday’s attack was said to be a retributive action for publishing blasphemous cartoons of Prophet Mohammad in Danish newspapers, SITE said.
One of the heroes of the ‘Qaedat al-Jihad’ carried out a suicide operation on the morning of Monday, said a statement signed by Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, an al-Qaeda. This operation is a warning to the infidel state and those who ride with it, so that they are deterred from
their sin and apologise for what they did, Yazid said.
SITE, which is a US-based group and monitors Islamic militant Internet websites and chat rooms, said the
message was posted today in several forums. (ANI)
