Investigators in Jordan have interviewed scores of people and detained at least a dozen suspects in connection with Wednesday's triple suicide bombings that killed 57 people.
Al-Qaida in Iraq claimed Friday that four Iraqis, including a husband and wife team, carried out the bombings at three hotels in Amman. Jordanian officials say the government has no information to confirm the Internet claim from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's group. The death toll rose to 57 Friday when Arab-American movie producer Mustafa Akkad died from his wounds. He is one of three Americans killed in the blast. Most of the dead were Jordanians attending wedding parties at the targeted hotels.
Meanwhile, thousands of Jordanians demonstrated for a second day to condemn the attacks. King Abdullah told CNN television that "there is tremendous outrage by the Jordanian public. We get angry and we get even."
