ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, June 3 -- Denmark's intelligence service cast blame on al-Qaeda for an attack near its embassy in Pakistan that investigators said Tuesday was carried out by a suicide bomber.

No one has asserted responsibility for Monday's car bombing, which killed six people, including two Pakistani policemen. But Danish authorities said the terrorist network or one of its affiliates was likely behind the explosion.

The group had recently threatened Denmark over caricatures of the prophet Muhammad that were reprinted earlier this year in newspapers in that country.
