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 the incident with the shootdown of the Ilyushin Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft over the Mediterranean Sea, Russia will supply an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system to Syria
