SANAA, Yemen —

Al-Qaida in Yemen has claimed responsibility for a weekend suicide bombing that killed at least 25 people in southern Yemen. The group says the car bomb attack was a warning to the U.S. to stop meddling in Yemen's affairs.

The group says in a statement that the attack that rocked a presidential compound in the city of Mukalla in Hadramout province on Saturday came in response to U.S. war against Islamist forces in Yemen.

The group vowed Wednesday that it will "come after this American project."

During a year of turmoil that eventually forced longtime President Ali Abdullah Salah out of office, al-Qaida-linked militants have seized control of towns and territory in the lawless south.

The U.S. considers al-Qaida in Yemen to be one of the group's most dangerous branches.
