Al-Qaida group claims crime lab bombing in Baghdad

Al-Qaida group claims crime lab bombing in Baghdad

An al-Qaida front group in Iraq is claiming responsibility for a suicide car bombing earlier this week at Baghdad's main crime lab that killed at least 22 people.
The claim by the Islamic State of Iraq for the Tuesday blast is its second this week for attacks in the heart of the Iraqi capital. The group has already said it carried out suicide car bombings at three hotels on Monday that claimed at least 41 lives.
The group's statement appeared on militant Web sites on Saturday.
The Islamic State of Iraq has claimed responsibility for all major bombings in Baghdad since August attacks at the Foreign and Finance ministries.
The claim could not be independently verified, but the group has used such Web sites for past proclamations.
