AMMAN, Jordan, AP – Three &#34non-Jordanian&#34 suicide bombers belonging to al-Qaida in Iraq carried out Amman”s triple hotel attacks that killed at least 57 people, Jordan”s deputy premier said Saturday.

Marwan Muasher said the three were males and that no females were among them, replying to claims by Jordanian-born militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi”s terror group that four Iraqis — including a husband and wife — carried out the bombings.

&#34The conclusion has arrived. Al-Qaida is behind the attacks and specifically Abu Musab al-Zarqawi”s people,&#34 Muasher told a packed press conference in Amman.

&#34It”s three people and there was no woman present,&#34 he added, saying they were &#34non-Jordanians.&#34 He didn”t elaborate on their nationalities.
