Jordan Broadcasts Would-be Suicide Bomber's Confession

  • VOA News

Jordanian television has broadcast the confession of an Iraqi woman who tried to blow herself up as part of al-Qaida's wave of suicide bombings that killed 57 people in Amman hotels Wednesday. The woman was shown on television wearing the explosives belt that failed to go off at a wedding reception at the Radisson Hotel. She says she left the hotel after her husband's belt exploded. Jordanian Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muashar says the woman's brother was a key aide to al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who was killed in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. The group claimed responsibility for the hotel bombings. Jordan's King Abdullah says his country's security forces will do their best to bring those behind the attacks to justice, even if they are located outside of Jordan.
