Claim of responsibility for London attack

Abu Hafs Al-Masri Brigade has claimed responsibility for yesterdays failed attack on London’s transport system. The claim was made on a website according to Reuters. Besides claims for attacks on Madrid’s transport system in March 2004, experts have discredited these claims. US officials say links of the group to al-Qaeda are unclear. Part of the statement read, "Our attack in the heart of the infidel British capital is nothing but a message to all European governments that we will not rest until all the infidel troops leave Iraq." It was dated July 22.
