Poland has detained an alleged agent with the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, who is suspected of aiding the team behind the assassination of a Palestinian figure in Dubai.
The detainee, named Uri Brodsky, "was arrested in Warsaw and is suspected of being involved in illegally obtaining a (German) passport," a spokesman for German federal prosecution said, according to AFP.
"It's now up to the Germans to decide if they are going to hand him over to Germany."
According to an article to be published Monday in Der Spiegel, Brodsky helped the Mossad assassination team obtain a German passport.
The Dubai police say twelve British, six Irish, four French, one German and three Australian passports had been used by suspects behind the January 20 assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a leader of the armed wing of Hamas.
