A small Salafist group in Gaza claimed responsibility on Thursday for a bomb attack that damaged a French cultural center in the Strip last week, AFP reported.

In an unverified video clip posted online, footage purported to show images of last Friday's attack that was said to have been carried out by Jund Ansar Allah - one of Gaza's five radical Islamist groups that adheres to an ultra-conservative version of Sunni Islam.
