Dubai police say suspect in Hamas death nabbed abroad

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A key suspect in the killing of a Hamas operative in Dubai has been arrested abroad but details of the capture are secret, according to Dubai's police chief.
The arrest took place in a Western country about two months ago, Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim said in comments published Monday in The National newspaper.
After the Jan. 19 killing of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, one of the founders of the group's military wing, Dubai police requested international help in trying to track down suspects in the slaying.
