Yemen's al-Qaida claims responsibility for assault on Charlie Hebdo, warns of more attacks

Yemen's al-Qaida branch on Wednesday claimed responsibility for last week's massacre at a Paris satirical newspaper, with one of its top commanders saying the assault was in revenge for the weekly's publications of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, considered an insult in Islam.

The claim came in a video posting by Nasr al-Ansi, a top commander of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which appeared on the group's Twitter account. The video was the group's official claim of the assault on the Charlie Hebdo offices, although a member of AQAP, as the branch is known, last Friday first confirmed to The Associated Press that the branch had carried out the attack.

In the 11-minute video, al-Ansi says the Charlie Hebdo attack, which killed 12 people - including editors, cartoonists and journalists, as well as two police officers - was in "revenge for the prophet."
