Officials: Jakarta hotel blasts kill 9, wound 50 AP

JAKARTA, Indonesia – A pair of powerful explosions at two luxury hotels killed nine and wounded at least 50 people in an upscale Jakarta neighborhood Friday morning, sending debris and glass flying onto the streets.
Anti-terror forces were at the scenes of both blasts, but did not yet want to speculate about the possibility of an attack by militants.
"There were bodies on the ground, one of them had no stomach," said a man who lives near the hotels and who arrived at the Marriott before emergency services. "It was terrible."
Alex Asmasubrata, who was jogging by the hotels, said he first heard a loud explosion at the Marriott. Five minutes later, a bomb followed at the Ritz.
The blasts were caused by "high explosives," Security Minister Widodo Adi Sucipto told reporters at the scene, without elaborating. He said they exploded two minutes apart.
He said a New Zealander was among those killed, and that thirteen other foreigners were among the injured.
Two U.S. officials said one American is believed to have been injured but that has not yet been confirmed. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.
The police operational chief Arief Wahyunadi said the bombs were planted in the Ritz-Carlton's Air Langga restaurant and the basement of the Marriott, which was attacked in 2003. Twelve people died in that assault, which was blamed on Southeast Asian terror network Jemaah Islamiyah.
There has been a massive crackdown by anti-terror officials since then, and it has been more than three years since a major terrorist attack in Indonesia.
The Manchester United football team was scheduled to stay at the Ritz on Saturday and Sunday nights for a friendly match against the Indonesian All Stars, the Indonesian Football association said.
Because of past attacks, most major hotels in Jakarta take security precautions, such as checking incoming vehicles and requiring visitors to pass through metal detectors. Still, international hotels make attractive targets, since the nature of their business requires them to be relatively open and accessible.

Explosions at 2 Hotels in Indonesia Kill at Least 9

Dita Alangkara/Associated Press Police officers inspected the damage after an explosion went off at the Marriott hotel in Jakarta on Friday.

By NORIMITSU ONISHI and MARK McDONALD Published: July 16, 2009
JAKARTA, Indonesia – Nearly simultaneous explosions hit two neighboring American hotels in central Jakarta on Friday morning, killing at least nine people and injuring dozens more, according to security officials.

The explosions, which occurred shortly before 8 a.m., damaged the Marriott Hotel and Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The blasts shattered windows just above the ground floor of the Ritz-Carlton, and thick plumes of smoke could be seen rising from the site. Witnesses at the scene told Indonesian Metro TV that the injured, including Indonesians and foreigners, were seen being taken away in ambulances. A presidential spokesman, Dino Patti Djalal, told CNN that the blasts were “a coordinated attack” and said that most of the fatalities - at least six - resulted from the Marriott blast. He added that foreign nationals were among the fatalities. The British soccer team Manchester United was due to arrive in Jakarta on Saturday, and at least some of the players had been booked into the Ritz-Carlton. The team is scheduled play a match against a team of Indonesian all-stars on Monday, although organizers were uncertain Friday if the event would go ahead as planned. In August 2003, a car bomb badly damaged the same Marriott, killing 12 people and injuring 150. Large hotels overseas – especially Western-owned hotels or those popular with foreigners -- have become prime targets for terrorists in recent years, with nearly a dozen major blasts at hotels since the Marriott was attacked here in 2003. The intelligence group Stratfor has called these high-profile hotels “the quintessential soft target.” The Marriott in Islamabad, Pakistan, was almost completely destroyed last September by a suicide bomber driving a truck full of explosives. That blast killed 53 and injured more than 260. Two months later, 10 gunmen swept through a tourist area of Mumbai, India, killing at least 164 people and taking numerous hostages in a three-day siege at two of the city’s landmark hotels, the Taj Mahal and Trident-Oberoi. Initial suspicion for the Friday blasts is likely to be directed at Jemaah Islamiyah, the Islamist terrorist network with links to Al Qaeda and cells throughout Southeast Asia. The United States government has placed Jemaah Islamiyah on its list of terrorist organizations. The Indonesian police, the defense ministry and the International Crisis Group have implicated Jemaah Islamiyah in the previous bombing of the Jakarta Marriott. The bomber was known to be a member of the group; he was identified after the blast when his severed head was found on the sixth floor of the hotel. Jemaah Islamiyah also bombed two nightclubs in Bali, Indonesia, in October 2002. Two coordinated explosions killed 182 people – most of them foreign tourists -- and wounded 240. A subsequent series of explosions in Bali, in October 2005, killed 20 people, another attack tied to the Islamist network. Several members of Jemaah Islamiyah have been convicted in the 2002 Bali attacks, including the group’s most senior leader, the militant Islamic cleric Abu Bakar Bashir. Last November, three men were executed by firing squad for their roles in the blast. Another prime suspect in the Bali bombings, Mas Selamat bin Kastari, was apprehended by Malayasian authorities in April, more than a year after escaping from a prison in Singapore.

Norimitsu Onishi reported from Jakarta and Mark McDonald from Hong Kong.
