Jordon Bombings, Nov 09 2005

Three bombs exploded in the evening of Nov 09, 2005 in Amman, Jordon. The attack at the Radisson SAS was just one of three nearly simultaneous suicide bombings on U.S.-based hotels in the Jordanian capital Wednesday night. Officials said 57 people were killed and 115 were wounded in what appeared to be an al-Qaida assault on an Arab kingdom with close ties to the United States. Most of the casualties at the Radisson were Jordanians attending the wedding, where a man strapped with explosives joined the 300 guests in the ground-floor reception hall. The explosions hit the Grand Hyatt, Radisson SAS and Days Inn hotels just before 9 p.m. Black smoke rose into the night, and wounded victims stumbled from the hotels.

Our specification for the hypothesis test is a period beginning one hour before the first blast and continuing to 4 hours after. The result is a positive trend with Chisq 18307 on 18000 df, Z = 1.618 and p = 0.053.
