The Islamic State of Iraq, an insurgent umbrella group which includes al-Qaida in Iraq, claimed Friday one of its "knights" carried out the parliament suicide bombing in Baghdad's Green Zone, and the US military revised the death toll sharply downward to one dead. The Islamic State said in an Internet posting that it had delayed issuing the claim of responsibility to allow its men time to flee.
