Al Shabab Claims Responsibility for Somalia Plane Bomb

Islamic extremist group al Shabab has claimed responsibility for the bombing of a passenger plane earlier this month in Somalia that blew a hole in the fuselage and sucked out the suspected instigator.

In a statement Saturday, al Shabab said the explosion targeted dozens of Western intelligence officials and Turkish NATO forces aboard a plan bound for Djibouti on Feb. 2. The operation was "retribution," it said, for acts against Somali Muslims.
