Jordan Bombers Identified, Wife in Custody
A woman has been arrested in the Jordan bombings. She will confess on Jordanian tv this afternoon. She was to be one of the four bombers but her equipment didn't work and her husband and co-bomber scuttled her out of the hotel ballroom right before he blew himself up, taking with him many of the wedding guests.
The woman's brother was al Zarqawi's right hand man in the Anbar province of Iraq who was killed last year.
More details here.
Update: She was just on tv confessing. She didn't say her husband pushed her out of the way, only that his belt went off and her's didn't so she fled with the others in the ballroom.
All of the bombers were Iraqi. The Jordanian Government is going out of its way to reassure the Iraqis in Jordan that they are still welcome there.
