They were cool, calm and collected, paid cash and thought fast on their feet.

That is the profile of the suicide bombers in last week’s Jakarta hotel attacks that security experts have compiled.

Alan Orlob, Marriott International’s vice president of corporate security, said his team had just got back hotel CCTV footage from police that showed one of the suspected attackers appeared calm when he entered the Marriott last Friday.

“The guy came in through the inspection station and he seemed very cool and calm,” said Orlob, who was staying at the adjacent Ritz-Carlton.
