Dubai Names Suspects Wanted for Killing Hamas Leader

Authorities in Dubai are seeking international assistance in the search for the 11 suspects who are thought to be responsible for the killing of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Police officials have identified the names and photographs of the 11 members of the hit-squad believed to be behind Mabhouh’s assassination in January.  Surveillance videos show that members of the group followed Mabhouh from the airport to his hotel room, and fled the country immediately after the killing. The suspects all hold European passports, with six from Britain, three from Ireland, and one from Germany and France. Dubai has issued international arrest warrants and is seeking help from both Interpol and individual nations to hunt down the suspects. Hamas has made the accusation that the Israeli intelligence unit, Mossad, was behind the assassination.
