26 suspects wanted for assasination

The government in Dubai has issued pictures of 26 "agents" with faked European and Australian passports that it suspects of involvement in the assassination of a top Hamas official last month.

Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was murdered in his hotel room in Dubai on 20 January.

Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist movement, accused Israeli agents of killing him. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied involvement. Reports said he was in Dubai to buy weapons for Hamas.

Dubai's police said 12 of the suspects had British passports, six had Irish passports, four had French, three had Australian and one had a German passport.
