AQ claims Prince Nayef’s attack

Al Jazeera English – Middle East – Al-Qaeda claims Saudi prince attack

Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility for a suicide bomb attack on Saudi Arabia’s Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the deputy interior minister and the man who heads the kingdom’s crackdown on the group.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the group’s Saudi arm, claimed responsibility on Friday in a message posted on internet forums monitored by the Site Intelligence Group.

FT:

The attack demonstrates the ongoing threat of terrorism in the kingdom,” said Christopher Boucek, an expert on militant groups at the Washington-based Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “Had the attack killed or seriously wounded Prince Mohammed, it would have been a significant propaganda boost for al-Qaeda.”
