Dubai police: We have DNA

2010-03-05 22:35
Cairo - Dubai's police chief says investigators have collected DNA samples and fingerprints of some of the suspects in the high-profile slaying of a Hamas operative in Dubai.

Lieutenant-General  Dahi Khalfan Tamim said in an interview aired on Al-Jazeera television on Friday that the samples were collected from the Dubai hotel, where Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found dead in his room on January 20.

Tamim said the samples would allow Dubai authorities to positively identify the suspects if they were arrested, even if they had changed their appearance.

Tamim has accused Israel's Mossad spy agency of being behind al-Mabhouh's assassination.

Dubai police have identified at least 26 suspects. At least 15 of them were carrying fraudulent passports of Israeli citizens.
