JAKARTA (Reuters) - Bomb blasts at the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels in Jakarta's central business district on Friday morning were "terrorist bombs," presidential spokesman Dino Patti Djalal was quoted as saying on Metro TV.

"It's clear this is not a gas explosion but terrorist bombs," Djalal said.

Two bombs, at the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton in Kuningan, Jakarta, killed 9 people and injured 42.
