DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Dubai's police chief said Monday an 11-member hit squad with European passports was responsible for killing a Hamas commander in his hotel room last month, but he did not directly implicate Israel as the Islamic militant group has. The Gulf emirate released photos, names, nationalities and passport numbers of all 11 suspects.
The details given by Lt. Gen. Dhahi Khalfan Tamim are the most comprehensive accusations by Dubai authorities since the body of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found Jan. 20 in his luxury hotel room near Dubai's international airport.
Tamim said it was possible that "leaders of certain countries gave orders to their intelligence agents to kill" al-Mabhouh, one of the founders of Hamas' military wing. But he did not name any countries.

Dubai says Hamas man killed by European hit squad
The docudrama movie "Munich" has a European hit squad, too, directed from Israel ... :-)
Sounds like a “SWORDFISH” in there somewhere, too...
He was probably shopping at the mall. They have some nice ones there.
Maybe so... but the thing about “Munich” is that it did happen and Israel did send out a hit squad. This was real-life stuff...
Don’t mess around with Israel... :-)
Supposedly the security was held back by a full flight and was enroute. I think Kevin Smith had taken their seats.
Snort. As long as I don’t have to sit next to him....
At least seven people were involved in the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai last week, according to Dubai police chief Dhahi Khalfan... He also said that the main suspects in the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh held various European passports, AFP reported... Dubai authorities have said a "professional criminal gang" with European passports was likely behind the killing.That points directly toward Fatah, which has a decent amount of diplomatic and espionage infrastructure in Europe.
