Jordan's military prosecutor has concluded his investigation into last year's hotel bombings in Amman and plans to indict 11 people, including the al-Qaida in Iraq chief, fugitive Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press Tuesday. The nine-page draft indictment said Iraqi female would-be suicide bomber, Sajida Mubarak al-Rishawi, 35, would be the only one from those indicted who will stand trial in Jordan's military State Security Court. Jordanian authorities arrested al-Rishawi on Nov. 12, three days after the triple hotel blasts, which killed 63 people, including the three Iraqi suicide bombers. They were the deadliest in Jordan's history.
