Yemen's Al-Qaeda branch Wednesday claimed responsibility for last week's massacre at a Paris satirical newspaper, with one of its top commanders saying the assault was in revenge for the weekly's publications of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, considered an insult in Islam.The claim came in a video posting by Nasr al-Ansi, a top commander of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which appeared on the group's Twitter account. The attack on Charlie Hebdo's offices in Paris was the beginning of three days of terror in France that saw 17 people killed before the three Islamic extremist attackers were gunned down by security forces.Al-Ansi also referenced AQAP's radical Yemeni-American preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in September 2011, saying he arranged the Paris attack.However, a member of AQAP sent a message to the AP last Friday, saying the group had orchestrated the attack.
