Bomb blast at the Indonesian embassy in Paris

A group unknown to police and going by the name of the French Armed Islamic Front has sent an e-mail in which it claims responsibility for a bomb blast at the Indonesian embassy in Paris, judicial officials say.

The judicial officials said they had not been able to verify the authenticity of the e-mail sent to the town hall of the district where the embassy is located and other sources said they doubted its veracity. "This event, even if it was bungled, is a clear warning to &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/main/2002/04/22/27818.html ' target=_blank>France," the e-mail said, according to the judicial officials.

Parts of the message were oddly phrased in French slang, Reuters informed.

According to the TvNz, a small parcel bomb exploded outside the Indonesian &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/society/2001/09/16/15309.html ' target=_blank>embassy in Paris before dawn on Friday, slightly injuring 10 people and shattering windows, but officials said they had no clues to the motive.

Investigators who combed the area found gas canister fragments but said they knew little about the device and it was too early to say who was behind the bombing.
