Somalia bombings have markings of Al-Qaeda, US official says
Depending on what one means by "al-Qaeda," perhaps. If this official means a leader in the core unit of al-Qaeda issued it, that would be unlikely; if by "al-Qaeda" the official means Islamists with the same ideologies, who may nonetheless...
