A fourth American has died from wounds sustained in last week's triple hotel bombings in the Jordanian capital, a U.S. Embassy official said Tuesday.

The embassy official, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with embassy protocol, said the U.S. mission learned of the person's death on Tuesday, which was the first time they had been made aware of the individual's presence in Jordan.

No details were available on the American's identity or when the person died. The person had not been on the embassy's records until it was notified of the death Tuesday.

Three Iraqi suicide bombers detonated explosive belts at three Amman hotels last Wednesday killing 57 others. Syrian-American filmmaker Mustapha Akkad, 75, and his daughter Rima, 34 were among the victims. The other American killed also has not been identified.

Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terror group led by Jordanian-born militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
