Iraq offered Jordan its support Sunday in the Amman hotel bombings probe and warned that unchecked violence in Iraq will spread terrorism across the region. At least three Iraqis - and possibly a fourth Iraqi woman - are believed to have carried out Wednesday's triple suicide bombings on the Grand Hyatt, Radisson SAS and Days Inn hotels, killing 57 people in Jordan's deadliest ever attack. Jordanian officials confirmed that al-Qaida in Iraq carried out the attack and the country's ruler, King Abdullah II, suggested the bombers were Iraqis who had entered Jordan from either Syria or Iraq. Iraqi Defense Minister Saadoun al-Dulaimi met Sunday with Jordan's prime minister, Adnan Badran, to offer his war-ravaged country's condolences over the attacks and assistance in the hunt for bombing accomplices. "We are partners in facing terrorism," al-Dulaimi told The Associated Press. "Amman's ordeal - and Jordan's ordeal - is the ordeal of all Iraqis."
