A 19-year-old Jordanian man died Sunday from a brain injury sustained in the November 9 suicide bombing at the hotel where he worked, raising the death toll in the triple blasts to 60, his family said. Ammar Shaker Judeh had been in a coma due to a shrapnel wound to the head after an Iraqi suicide bomber affiliated with al-Qaida in Iraq blew himself up in the lobby of the Grand Hyatt, the official Petra news agency said. His brother, Ali, 32, said the funeral was planned for Monday. Petra said Judeh, a waiter, was the eighth Hyatt employee to die in the bombing. Two other employees remained in stable condition at an Amman hospital. The Grand Hyatt was one of three Amman hotels targeted by al-Qaida's Iraqi suicide bombers.
