Earlier this month, five additional suspects were reportedly identified in connection with the Mabhouh assassination. Police chief Lt.-Gen. Dhahi Khalfan Tamim reiterated the accusation that the Mossad was behind the operation.

The Wall Street Journal quoted Interpol Secretary-General Ronald K. Noble as saying, “That’s what is most extraordinary, the depth, thoroughness and openness of the Dubai police’s investigation of an assassination that took months to plan, but only hours to execute.”

The suspects held passports from Australia, Britain and France, and the New Zealand authorities are checking whether one of their country’s passports was used. Dubai police previously announced that 27 suspects used British, Irish, Australian, French and German passports.
