CAIRO: The Organization of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility for the attack on the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo through its Twitter account, Anadol news agency reported.
The attack, which killed 12 persons and injured more, was carried out to take “revenge for the Prophet Muhammad,” Anadol reported.
A posthumously released video of Amedi Coulibaly, one of two persons who took hostages in a kosher supermarket the day after the attack on the magazine, shows him pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group. He said the attacks were “justly deserved for a long time,” given what “they” were doing.
