Dubai police: Seven Europeans linked to assassination of senior Hamas militant
By Yossi Melman and Barak Ravid
 

Details continued to emerge yesterday on the assassination of senior Hamas member Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai last week. Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan told local reporters yesterday at least seven people with European passports were involved. He did not name the specific countries of the passports, but said the Dubai police approached the nations for information on these individuals.

The police chief said he did not rule out Mossad involvement, and said it seemed Mabhouh opened the door of his hotel room himself and let his assassins in.

National Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau yesterday strongly denied that the assassins were members of his entourage when he visited Abu Dhabi for a conference last week.

"This is just well-developed, even wild, Eastern imagination," Landau said ahead of the cabinet meeting yesterday. "My entourage was there for an international environmental conference, and nothing more," he said.

"Israel needs, on the one hand, to act according to the rule of killing first one who comes to kill you,", Minority Affairs Minister Avishay Braverman said yesterday, "and on the other hand, courageously strive for peace using the two states for two peoples solution."

Science and Technology Minister Daniel Hershkowitz said: "Meir Dagan is one of the best Mossad chiefs ever. It's well know that anyone raising his hand against Jews does so at his own risk."
