Dubai assassins wanted by Interpol

International police organization issues 'red notices' for 11 suspects connected with assassination of senior Hamas man Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Dubai police chief: Issue notice against Mossad chief

The Interpol on Thursday issued "red notices" for 11 suspects in the assassination of senior Hamas man Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.


Pictures of the11 suspects were published on the organization's website, along with a description of their alleged crimes. British newspaper The Guardian, which was first to report the Interpol's notice, claimed they all had ties with the Israeli secret services.


A similar claim was made earlier by Emirate's Police Chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim who said, "Our investigations reveal that Mossad is involved in the murder. It is 99%, if not 100%, that Mossad is standing behind the murder."


In comments to be aired later on Dubai TV, Tamim called for Interpol to issue a red notice against the head of Mossad should Israel's involvement in the assassination be proven.


According to the notice, the suspects are accused of entering the Arab Emirate using forged documents while "stealing" the identities of European citizens.

The Guardian reported that the notices did not mean that international arrest warrants were issued against the suspects. Rather, the notices were published in order to urge citizens across the world to provide information about the suspects and help apprehend them.


The Interpol notice included the information appearing on the fake passports carried by the suspects, including their names, birthdates and nationalities.


Also on Thursday, the British embassy in Israel announced that it contactacted four out of the six Israelis whose British passports were forged by the Dubai assassins.


The embassy staff initiated the contact and offered to issue new passports and other consular assistance. The embassy also said it is continuing to seek the two other British citizens whose names were used in the Dubai operation.
