BAGHDAD — Al-Qaida's front group in Iraq on Friday claimed responsibility for 91 deaths in a string of attacks on Baghdad's Shiite districts.

The Islamic State of Iraq is also threatening more attacks on the country's Shiite majority.

The group's statement was posted on a militant website and it said the assault Tuesday on Shiite civilians at restaurants and cafes across the capital was "the first day of many bloody days to come."
