Dubai police names 5 more suspects in Hamas leader`s killing

Five new suspects, were named by Dubai police as among accused in killing of a senior Hamas leader.



Dubai: Five new suspects, including four
Europeans, were on Friday named by Dubai police as among accused
in the killing of a senior Hamas leader at a hotel here, bringing the total number to 32.

Two of the new suspects in Hamas leader Mahmoud
al-Mabhouh`s assassination in January held French passports,
another two travelled on British passports, and the other, a
woman, had an Australian passport, Al-Arabiya TV reported.

Interpol has already issued arrest notices for 27
suspects wanted by Dubai Police in connection with the killing
of Mabhouh, who was found dead in his hotel room on January
20.

Mabhouh`s assassination has caused diplomatic tension
over the alleged falsification of European and Australian
passports by Israel`s spy agency Mossad.

Meanwhile, Australia has said it was investigating
reports that a fifth Australian passport had been linked to
Mabhouh`s murder.

Four allegedly forged Australian passports have
already been connected to the Cold War-style murder of
Mabhouh. Dubai Police has blamed Israel`s Mossad of carrying
out the killing.
