Malaysia strongly condemns Jakarta hotel terrorist bombing attacks

KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak issued a statement here on Friday night, strongly condemning bombing attacks at two hotels in Jakarta, capital of Indonesia.

"The Government of Malaysia condemns in the strongest terms, the horrific inhuman terrorist bombings at the JW Marriot and Ritz-Carlton hotels in Jakarta, Republic of Indonesia on 17 July 2009,"Najib said in the statement.

The Malaysian government was "deeply shocked and saddened that the senseless act of violence, deliberately directed at civilian targets designed to inflict maximum human casualties, had claimed the lives of many innocent people besides injuring large numbers of others", he said.

"It is our hope that the perpetrators of this heinous and despicable crime would be apprehended and brought to justice," he said.

Najib also said that the Malaysian government was confident that the attempt to undermine peace and stability and to instill fear among innocent people would only strengthen the Indonesian government's resolve and determination to eliminate the scourge of terrorism and bring peace and prosperity to the people of Indonesia.

He noted that Malaysia viewed this act as an attempt to undermine the vibrant democracy that exists in Indonesia, expressing confidence that Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and the Indonesian Government would succeed in bringing the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice.

Najib stressed that Malaysia was ready to work closely with Indonesia to combat the threat of terrorism to the two countries and their peoples.

Earlier Friday, separate bombings took place at the JW Marriottand Ritz-Carlton hotels in Jakarta, killing at least nine people and injuring other 61.

My View: This is wrong. No matter who done this, it is clearly wrong. And they should be brought to justice. Must be.
