Claim of responsibility for London blasts
There is reportedly an Internet claim of responsibility in today's London blasts. A group identifying itself as "The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe" has posted a message saying the blasts were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
However, its authenticity hasn't been confirmed. An Arabic-language news Web site and a German magazine say the message was published on a Web site popular with Islamic militants. The statement also threatened attacks in Italy and Denmark.
