Dhahi Khalfan tells AFP: "I don't exclude any possibility" in Mabhouh's assassination; Israeli officials say commander played key role in smuggling weapons from Iran to Gaza.
At least seven people were involved in the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai last week, according to Dubai police chief Dhahi Khalfan.
"It could be Mossad, or another party... I don't exclude any possibility. I don't exclude any party that has an interest in the assassination," Khalfan told AFP.
He also said that the main suspects in the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh held various European passports, AFP reported.
In Israel, meanwhile, officials said Sunday that Mabhouh played a central role in smuggling weapons from Iran to Gaza, but they refused to say whether Israel was responsible for killing the man it had sought for two decades.
Hamas leaders have accused Israel of killing Mabhouh in a posh Dubai hotel on January 20 and threatened revenge, though they have provided little evidence to support their claim. Dubai authorities have said a "professional criminal gang" with European passports was likely behind the killing.
The defense officials said Mabhouh was key to moving arms made in Iran or funded by the Iranian government to Gaza, which is ruled by Hamas. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were discussing confidential information.
Israel has neither confirmed nor denied involvement in the killing.

Could be that he boinked one of Putin’s daughters and then dumped her in the morning.
FINE JOB, MOSSAD!
Something is up. I am picking up little bits here and there of activity, troop movements, etc.
The guy probably died during a gay - orgy, so why not simply blame Israel? Blaming the Jews is the answer for all problems to the illiterate sheep of the middle east.
You’re correct....something is up. US has guns pointing in the Gulf now on Iran. Saudi/US distracting Iran with Yemen fight. Israel has north covered, been alot of motion there since before Christmas. Syria targeted if she tries anything.....yep..something is more than up...they’re getting ready.

Was he a guest at the Grand Opening of the new 880 meter tall "Tower of Babel" constructed by bankrupt Abu Dabhi? Awesome location for a hit!
