Dubai may seek Israel PMs arrest

DUBAI: Dubai will issue an arrest warrant for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if Israel is found to be implicated in the murder of a top militant Palestinian in the emirate, The National newspaper reported today.

Dubai police chief Dhahi Khalfan has said that Israel’s spy agency Mossad could have been behind the January 20 killing of Mahmud al-Mabhuh, a founder of the military wing of the Palestinian movement Hamas, in a luxury hotel room.

Netanyahu “will be the first to be wanted for justice as he would have been

the one who signed the decision to kill al-Mabhuh in Dubai,” The National quoted Khalfan as saying. “We will issue an arrest warrant against him,” said the English-language newspaper published in Abu Dhabi.
