DUBAI: Al Qaeda in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, saying it was for insulting Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), according to a video posted on YouTube.

“As for the blessed Battle of Paris, we, the Organisation of al Qaeda al Jihad in the Arabian Peninsula, claim responsibility for this operation as vengeance for the Messenger of God,” said Nasser bin Ali al Ansi of the Yemeni branch of the al Qaeda (AQAP) in the recording.
