In a video released by the media unit of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), outfit’s top commander Nasr al-Ansi described the bloodshed as "blessed battle of Paris."

"As for the blessed Battle of Paris, we, the Organisation of al Qaeda al Jihad in the Arabian Peninsula, claim responsibility for this operation as vengeance for the Messenger of God," al-Ansi said.

Warning of more "terror tragedies", the AQAP leader said France belongs to the "party of Satan."
