Dubai police said on Friday they have DNA proof of the identity of at least one of the killers of senior Hamas leader Mahmud al-Mabhouh in the emirate last month. "We have DNA evidence ... from the crime scene. The DNA of the criminals is there," police chief Dhahi Khalfan told Al Arabiya.


According to him, police had "categorical DNA proof on one of the assassins" and fingerprint evidence from several other suspects, providing "100 percent" proof of their identities.


Earlier, Khalfan said that an international police unit with officers from the United Arab Emirates and at least seven other countries will hunt for the killers of Mabhouh suspected of being Israeli Mossad agents. Al-Bayan daily quoted Khalfan as saying that officers from the United Arab Emirates, unspecified European countries, Australia and perhaps the United States, would be part of the unit. He added that some of his officers had already travelled to several "European countries concerned" with the investigation.
