Al-Qaida has claimed responsibility for the three suicide bombings in Jordan that killed at least 57 people, according to a message posted on the Internet on Thursday. "A group of lions of al-Qaida ... launched a new attack on some of the dens in the land of the Muslims in Amman," the Web posting said. It claimed that despite security measures, "some al-Qaida soldiers were able to reach their targets and carry out their duties." The statement was signed in the name of the spokesman for al-Qaida in Iraq, a group which is led by the Jordanian-born Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
