Another Terrorist Attack on Luxury Business Hotels: At Least 6 Dead in Bombings at Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott in Jakarta

There was another terrorist attack on hotels that cater to foreign visitors, as at least 6 people died in bombings this morning at the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels in Jakarta, Indonesia. Both are five-star hotels.

[UPDATE: Here's an update via CNN].

This is the second time the Jarakta JW Marriott has been bombed. The first was in the summer 2003, when a suicide bomber killed 12 and injured more than 150 there.

Here are the Web sites for the Jakarta Ritz-Carlton and the Jakarta JW Marriott. Both hotels are properties of Marriott International.
