JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- Indonesia's security minister says nine people have been killed and 50 wounded in hotel blasts in downtown Jakarta.

The minister says a New Zealander was among those killed. Thirteen other foreigners were among injured in the blasts at the Ritz-Carlton and Marriott hotels.

The Marriott hotel was attacked in 2003, when 12 died, but it has been more than three years since a major terrorist attack in Indonesia.
