Al-Qaida wing claims failed US plane attack on website


A suspected Al Qaeda's regional wing said on Monday it was behind a failed plane attack on a U.S. passenger plane to avenge U.S. attacks on the group in Yemen, according to an Internet statement posted on Monday.

The group said it provided the Nigerian suspect with a "technically advanced device" but that it had failed to detonate because of a technical fault.

In a statement posted on the websites, the group identified the suspect as Umar Farouk al-Nigiri (the Nigerian), and said the attack was a response to U.S. attacks on the group in Yemen.
