15 new suspects in Dubai assassination

The Gulf News in the United Arab Emirates leads with this story: the total number of suspects in the July assassination of a Hamas commander has risen to 26. THURSDAY, 25th FEBRUARY, 2010

It’s on the front page of Gulf News: 15 extra suspects have been identified in the Dubai assassination of Mahmoud al-Mahbouh. This includes three Australians, six Brits, three Irish and three French citizens. However, the passports appear to have been issued in an illegal and fraudulent manner with the pictures not corresponding to those of the original owners, the paper says.
 
Yossi Melman writing in the left-leaning Israeli daily Haaretz is somewhat sceptical regarding these new revelations.
 
“Without disparaging the skill of Dubai’s chief of police… one must take into account that he might have gotten carried away in success of what he had uncovered?”
 
“It is hard to believe that Mossad would be so irresponsible as to dispatch nearly 30 agents and to expose an entire select operational unit on one assassisnation operation,” he says.
 
There is also coverage of the story in the Australian Jewish News and the Sydney Morning Herald.
