A day after failed explosions in London an al-Qaida-linked group claimed responsibility for them.
A statement was posted Friday on an Islamic Web site in the name of an al-Qaida-linked group. The group claimed responsibility for latest blasts targeting London's transport system.
The group, Abu Hafs al Masri Brigade, also claimed responsibility for the July 7 bombings which killed 52 people and four suicide bombers.
The statement's authenticity could not be immediately verified, says the AP.
London police are searching for four "would-be" bombers after three subway trains and a bus were targeted with explosives that failed to detonate Thursday.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
