Metal detector at the Marriott hotel was not functioning

Written by editor

“I also found that the metal detector at the Marriott hotel was not functioning,” Aristama, a Gegana officer told The Jakarta Post.

“I also found that the metal detector at the Marriott hotel was not functioning,” Aristama, a Gegana officer told The Jakarta Post.

This has not yet been officially confirmed, but may explain how the bomb could have been carried into the hotel restaurant.

A source suggested that the suspected bombers were guest at the hotels. This was also reported by the Associated Press.

An unexploded bomb was found on the 18th floor of the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The bomb was defused by police.

Security has been very tight for years. Anyone entering the hotel has to go through a metal detector.

The bombing at the JW Marriott hotel, one of two luxury hotels bombed Friday, was allegedly a suicide bombing, according to a police bomb squad (Gegana).

“We uncovered a dead body whose head, hands, and feet were found separately,” Aristama, a Gegana officer told The Jakarta Post.

According to him, the dead body was allegedly the person who carried the bomb into the hotel.

Gegana also found a burnt, destroyed bag, which was allegedly carrying the bomb, he said. “The destroyed bag has been brought to our forensic lab for further investigation,” he said.

Aristama said that Gegana had also found three other unclothed dead bodies, two men and one woman.
