Today, January 9, 2006, al-Qaeda in Iraq released a rebuttal of claim to the January 5, 2006 blasts in Karabala that killed over 120 people. The group clearly states that ?it is not responsible for what happened with the explosion in Karbala lately.?
To date, no one has issued a claim of responsibility for the attack.
