A Pakistani Islamist terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for Wednesday's attack on the Delhi High Court.

The Harkat ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) claimed responsibility in an email sent from an unknown location for the blast, which killed at least 10 people and wounded 60 others. No Israelis were killed or wounded in the attack.

The group also has a branch in Bangladesh, according to news sources.

A bomb packed into a briefcase exploded outside Gate No. 5 of the court complex at 10:15 a.m., as litigants and lawyers were waiting to enter. It was the second bombing at the court house within the past four months.

The HuJI has been active since the early 1990s, and received direct assistance almost immediately from Al Qaeda terrorist founder Osama bin Laden. Recruits go through military training in camps located in Afghanistan and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
