WASHINGTON (AP) - A Yemen-based al-Qaida group is claiming
responsibility for the international mail bomb plot uncovered late
last week.


A week after authorities intercepted packages in Dubai and
England that were bound for the U.S., Al-Qaida in the Arabian
Peninsula issued a message Friday saying it will continue to strike
American interests.
 

Both mail bombs were wired to detonators that used cell phone
technology.
 

U.S. officials have said they believe it was the Yemen group.
The claim was reported by the private SITE Intelligence Group.
Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula also says it was behind the
mail bomb plot uncovered by international authorities late last
week.
 

A U.S. official has said that authorities have found no evidence
that the crash of the Boeing 747-400 was caused by a bomb.
Investigators still don't know what caused the fire that erupted on
the plane's main cargo deck.
