Dubai police: Mossad involved in Hamas slaying

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Dubai's police chief says the investigation into the killing of a Hamas commander now points almost certainly to Israel's Mossad spy agency.

The Web site of UAE daily The National on Thursday quoted Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim saying a probe into the slaying "reveal(s) that Mossad is involved in the murder" of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

He says it "is 99 percent, if not 100 percent that Mossad is standing behind the murder."

The National is owned by the government of Abu Dhabi, capital of the UAE.

Tamim could not immediately be reached for comment.

Names on the passports of seven suspects implicated matched those of people living in Israel, raising possible links.
