Yemeni Al-Qaeda Leader Claims Responsibility for Paris Attack: Reports
MOSCOW, January 21 (Sputnik) — The al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) terrorist group is calling for more attacks on the West by followers who live there, the Yemen-based group's spokesperson told its media wing in an interview published by SITE Monitoring Group.

"If [an individual] is capable to wage jihad in the Western countries that fight Islam, such as America, Britain, France, Canada… then that is better and more harmful," SITE Monitoring Group quoted Nasser bin Ali Ansi as saying in the interview.

Last week, Ansi claimed AQAP's responsibility for the January 7 Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, citing "vengeance for the prophet" and warning of more terrorist attacks abroad.

"We have made efforts in external work, and the enemy knows the danger of that," the spokesperson from the offshoot group added.

Yemeni Al-Qaeda Leader Hails Paris Attacks, Predicts More Bloodshed
Reports emerging in the wake of the gun massacre alleged that one of the attackers, Said Kouachi, had ties with al-Qaeda and trained with the group in Yemen four years ago.

On January 10, Yemeni authorities responded to earlier claims by AQAP members of their responsibility for the attack on the French satirical magazine by launching an investigation into AQAP.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has entrenched itself in Yemen over the past year due to fierce, prolonged clashes between government forces and Houthi militias in the country.
