Interpol issues `Red Notices` in Hamas leader killing
Paris: International police agency Interpol on Thursday issued arrest notices for 11 suspects wanted by Dubai for the killing of a Hamas leader there.
The 11 have been charged by authorities in the United Arab Emirates with co-ordinating and committing the murder of Mahmud al-Mabhuh, it said in a statement.
Mabhuh, a commander of the Palestinian militant group Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip, was killed in a hotel room in Dubai on January 19.
Officials have said suspects in the killing used fake passports from Britain, France and Ireland.
Announcing the issue of the so-called Red Notices, Interpol said it "has reason to believe that the suspects linked to this murder have stolen the identities of real people."
Red Notices are "to seek the arrest or provisional arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradition," according to the Interpol website.
Dubai police chief Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim said he was 99 percent sure the Israeli spy agency Mossad was behind the murder, Emirati newspaper The National reported earlier.
Britain, France and Ireland summoned Israeli Ambassadors on Thursday over the question of fake passports.
