The Palestinian Group Hamas claimed that Mahmoud Al Mabhouh died in suspicious circumstances on the day he arrived in Dubai. Al Mabhouh was a founder of the Izz Al Din Qassam Brigades who are responsible for countless attacks and bombings aimed at Israeli troops and civilians. Al Mabhouh himself, the BBC reports, was living in Syria and suspected of abducting and subsequently killing two Israeli soliders in 1989. Hamas has vowed revenge.

Update:

The Dubai police have named seven suspects all with Western European passports as wanted for the murder of Al Mabhouh. Their pictures will be released soon. Mossad have been named by the Dubai police as behind the assassination. Al Mabhouh was electrocuted before being suffocated.
