At least eight people were killed and 50 injured when two bomb blasts ripped through the Ritz-Carlton and the Marriott early today. The explosions in the citys central business district were followed by a third blast in the north of the city a few hours later. Two more people are believed to have died in that blast. The bombs were detonated inside cafs in each hotel. Police believe it may have been a combination of planted explosives and suicide bomb- ers -- some of whom had posed as hotel guests. A New Zealander was confirmed as one of the dead. Britons are also feared to be among the four foreign victims. The first bomb went off at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel at 7.41am local time followed less than 10 minutes later by the bomb at the Marriott. At 11am a third bomb went off near a toll booth on a motorway. No group has claimed responsibil- ity for the attacks so far but Islamic militant network Jemaah Islamiyah, the main group associated with bombings in Indonesia and a string of suicide attacks on local and Western targets in Southeast Asia in recent years, may be involved. Bob McKerron, of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, said: There was no warning of this at all. The last bomb took everyone by surprise because the attack seems totally indiscriminate, not confined to US hotel chains. Security guard Eko Susanto said: I heard two sounds like boom, boom coming from the hotels. Then I saw people running out. Jakartas police chief said several suspects in the bombing of the Marriott were staying at the hotel, on the 18th floor where undetonated explosives were found. He added: There were several perpetrators. They were disguised as guests and stayed in room 1808. In October 2002, Indonesia suffered its worst terrorist atrocity when bombs in two nightclubs in Bali killed 202 people. Three Islamic militants were con- victed of the attack and were exe- cuted by firing squad last year.
