Yemen al Qaeda Claim Responsibility Claiming ‘Revenge’
An al Qaeda Yemen member says the group is responsible for the Charlie Hebdo killings as “revenge for the honor” of Prophet Muhammad.
AP and The Intercept quoted a statement sent to them by a source within Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), commonly referred to as Al-Qaeda in Yemen.
The statement, provided on condition of anonymity, says “the leadership of AQAP directed the operations and they have chosen their target carefully as a revenge for the honor of Prophet [Muhammad].” It directly refers to the Wednesday attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which resulted in 12 people killed.
