British investigate ID theft by 'Mossad' hit squad in Dubai

Britain was today looking into whether any its nationals had their identities stolen by the assassination squad who killed a Hamas leader in a Dubai hotel. Police in the Gulf state are conducting an international manhunt for 11 suspects in the murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in his hotel room on January 19. The investigators have named Melvyn Mildiner, Stephen Hodes, Paul Keeley, Jonathon Graha, James Clarke and Michael Barney as the British passport holders suspected of involvement in the murder, along with three with Irish passports, including a woman, and the holders of a German and a French passport. The Foreign Office and the Irish Government confirmed today that the passports used were fake. "We are aware that the holders of six British passports have been named in this case. We believe the passports used were fraudulent and have begun our own investigation," said a spokesman. "We have informed the authorities in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) that this is the case, and continue to cooperate closely with the Emiratis on this matter,"
