The latest reports have revealed that some of the suspects in the January murder of a Hamas militant in his Dubai hotel room left the city-state for the United States and Israel, Dubai's police chief said in remarks published Monday.
"Some travelled to America while others went to Israel," Dahi Khalfan Tamim reported to Gulf News, speaking after Dubai police announced the outcome of a forensic examination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh's body
Tamim has earlier claimed it was virtually definite that Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, had dispatched the team of 26 suspected killers to assassinate al-Mabhouh, one of the founders of Hamas' armed wing
In remarks published Saturday, Tamim called on Meir Dagan, the head of the Mossad, to "be a man" and admit the spy agency had killed al-Mabhouh
