Cousin of slain Hamas operative barred from Israel

Israel has barred the cousin of a Hamas operative assassinated in Dubai from entering the country from the Gaza Strip for medical care, and the man's doctors claim his life is now in danger.
Fifty-six-year-old Mohammed al-Mabhouh was diagnosed with heart failure symptoms more than a year ago and was permitted to enter Israel for treatment, most recently in December.
The following month, his cousin, senior Hamas arms trafficker Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, was assassinated in Dubai in a hit blamed on the Mossad.
Since then, Mohammed al-Mabhouh has been barred from Israel, with security officials on Tuesday citing his "ties to terror activities."
