BAGHDAD  — An al-Qaida-linked group claimed responsibility for a Monday bombing targeting the Baghdad offices of the pan-Arab television station Al-Arabiya in a statement released Thursday.

The statement described the Dubai-based channel as "corrupt," and said the operation was carried out by a "hero of Islam."

The Arabic-language channel is one of the most popular in the Middle East but is perceived by insurgents as being pro-Western.

At least six people were killed in Monday's bombing at the channel's headquarters.
