WASHINGTON — A Yemen-based al-Qaida group on Friday claimed responsibility for the mail bomb plot uncovered by officials late last week.

A week after authorities intercepted packages in Dubai and Britain that were bound for the US, Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula issued a message saying it will continue to strike American interests.

Both mail bombs were wired to detonators that used cell phone technology.

US officials have said they believed it was the Yemen group. The claim was reported by the private SITE Intelligence Group.
