Marriott Islambad bombed

The Marriott Islamabad has been hit by a huge bomb - BBC article here.
I stayed here in June with two other Sun execs.
I am guessing there'll be a travel ban to Pakistan for some time now. The other place we stay at, the Serena, is much more secure - cars cannot drive near the hotel itself and the car check point is 100 metres of so away from reception, down a fairly steep incline.
My heart goes out to the guests and staff affected by this pointlessness.
