CAIRO - Sinai-based Islamist militant group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis claimed responsibility for a failed attempt on Thursday to assassinate Egyptian Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

"God allowed us to break the security system of the minister of interior ... through a suicide operation committed by one of Egypt's lions that made the interior butcher see death with his eyes, and what is to come will be worse," the group said on Sunday in a statement posted on a jihadist Web site.
