BERLIN — Prosecutors said an alleged Israeli spy wanted in connection with the slaying of a Hamas leader in Dubai earlier this year has been set free on bail by a German judge.
Cologne prosecutors' spokesman Rainer Wolf said after a closed-door hearing Friday that the suspect known as Uri Brodsky is free to travel wherever he wants to go while judicial proceedings against him in Germany will continue.

He said: "He can return to Israel today if he wants to."
Prosecutors accuse Brodsky of illegally helping to procure a German passport used in connection with the Jan. 19 slaying of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, allegedly by a Mossad hit squad.
Brodsky was arrested June 4 at Warsaw airport. He was extradited to Germany on Thursday.
