Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
condemned the bombings in Jordan as the work of indiscriminate killers and said she may visit the kingdom while in the Mideast this week to show solidarity with an Arab ally in the fight against terrorism.
The nearly simultaneous attack on three Western hotels that killed at least 56 people - including partygoers at a wedding celebration - "underscores that these terrorists will attack innocent people without remorse," Rice said Thursday as she flew to the region.
Rice's trip, scheduled before Wednesday's bombings, includes a stop in Bahrain for meetings on development and democratic progress in the Middle East. She will also visit Saudi Arabia
, Israel and the West Bank.
