JERUSALEM (AP) – The British Embassy in Israel says a special police investigator has been flown in to meet with the dual British-Israeli nationals whose British passports were used in the assassination of a Hamas operative in Dubai.

Embassy spokesman Rafi Shamir says the officer will meet with the identity theft victims soon. He had no further details Saturday.

Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was killed in a Dubai hotel room last month by assassins using fake passports of real people. Dubai police have identified 26 suspects carrying foreign passports. At least six are dual British-Israeli nationals living in Israel.

Israel has neither denied or confirmed involvement but its Mossad spy agency has widely been credited in the assassination.
