New Zealand condemns 'abhorrent' bomb attacks in Jordanian capital on three hotels

New Zealand on Thursday condemned as "abhorrent" terror attacks on three hotels in the Jordanian capital, Amman, which killed dozens of people and injured another 115.

"Terrorist attacks of any kind must be condemned, but those which target innocent bystanders are particularly abhorrent," Prime Minister Helen Clark said of the blasts Wednesday night.

"Our sympathies go first and foremost to the people of Jordan, and those suffering as a result of this attack," she said in a statement.

Clark said she had sent a letter of condolence to Jordanian Prime Minister Adnan Badran.

"Jordan is a strong supporter of stability and peace in the Middle East, and New Zealand recognizes and values the role it plays," she added.

No casualties have been reported among some 70 New Zealand nationals known to live in Amman.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
