Hamas withdraws claim of Jerusalem attack

Ibrahim Daher, head of Hamas' al-Aqsa radio, said his station put out an earlier claim of responsibility prematurely, based on confused information.

Abu Obeida, a spokesman for Hamas' military wing, confirmed the group was not taking credit for the attack -- at least yet. There may be a later announcement ... But we don't claim this honor yet, he said.
