Two Bombs exploded at The Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott

Jakarta - Bomb blasts tore through two luxury hotels Friday morning in Jakarta, Indonesia, killing at least nine people in what the country's president called a "terrorist" attack. The explosions at the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels, which punched out the windows of a usually crowded restaurant and sent plumes of smoke into the sky.

Officials said 9 people died and more than 59 people wounded on Jakarta blast early this morning. It happened not only in 1 place, but 2 prestigious with highly security alert hotels: The Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott. I feel sick and don’t have to strength to do anything today. I sit still in front of TV (Which never happened before) and bear with the hot and humid weather of Jakarta, typing breaking news from TV to Twitter and Facebook.

Many people have slammed the bomb attacks include US President Barack Obama. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said the bombings as the work of extremists.

"I condemn this terrorist attack," Yudhoyono said. "I know they will never stop."

Police said the bomb at the Marriott likely came from the basement beneath the coffee shop on the ground floor, which would have been busy at breakfast time.

At the Ritz, windows were blown out on the second floor, as though the blast occurred from inside a hotel restaurant that also would have been crowded with a breakfast crowd

One of the people killed was identified as Timothy David McKay, 60, a New Zealand national, according to state-run Antara News Agency. Authorities were working to identify the other victims, the agency reported. It was heartbreaking to see Mr Tim McKay sitting helpless with blood all over his body.

I would like to express my deep condolence and sympathy to all.. to you.. to us.. to our beloved Indonesia..

And last but not least, let’s take a moment to pray for the victims and let’s do our best to help our country back on track.
