Suicide bombers simultaneously attacked three hotels frequented by foreigners in Jordan's capital late Wednesday, killing at least 53 people and injuring more than 300, Jordan's deputy prime minister said. One police official said they appeared to be al-Qaida attacks.
The explosions hit the Grand Hyatt, Radisson SAS and Days Inn hotels just before 9 p.m. (1900 GMT).
Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muasher told The Associated Press that the death toll was the latest obtained by Jordanian security.
