Seven of the eleven names that appeared in the passports allegedly used by the hit squad that killed Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai belong to olim with dual citizenships, Channel 10 reported on Tuesday night.

The seven olim are six British nationals and one German national, said the TV channel.

Police in Dubai claim the alleged assassination team comprised six British passport holders, three Irish and one each from France and Germany.
