CAIRO, Egypt— An al Qaeda-affliated group claimed responsibility for firing two mortars at the Italian Embassy in Yemen’s capital of San’a on Wednesday.
Yemen’s Soldiers Brigades, which defines itself as a branch of al Qaeda, posted an announcement late Saturday on a militant Web site saying the Italian Embassy was the target of the attack.

The group said its aim was to expel the “infidels” from the Arabian peninsula.
