Former US President Bill Clinton, his senator wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea visited Sunday one of the Jordanian hotels devastated by a suicide bomber in last week's attacks that killed 60 people, including the three assailants. "Hilary, Chelsea and I are here more than anything else to express our sympathy with the victims, their family members, our solidarity with the people of Jordan and our support for doing whatever is necessary to fight against and defeat this kind of destructive terror that murdered children and other innocents," Clinton told reporters while standing in the wrecked hall of the Radisson SAS hotel, where an attacker detonated a belt of explosives during a wedding. The Clintons had interrupted a visit to Israel to make a brief trip to Jordan at the invitation of King Abdullah II. The former president dismissed the theory that Jordan's close ties with the United States had caused it to be targeted by al-Qaida in Iraq, the terror group that claimed responsibility for the attacks. Clinton called for greater cooperation among governments, intelligence services and citizens in the campaign against terrorism.
