Arab leaders call on all concerned countries must cooperate with UAE security services to track down Mabhuh killers.

The Nation Press -

SIRTE - Arab leaders are to urge states whose passports were used to help track down the killers of a Hamas official in his Dubai hotel room, according to a draft resolution for their summit in Libya.

A copy of the draft condemns the murder in January of Mahmud al-Mabhuh, a founder of the military wing of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, as a "criminal and terrorist act."

"All concerned countries must cooperate with the security services of the United Arab Emirates to track down and bring to justice this criminal gang in line with international law and agreements," the text reads.

Arab leaders, who are to hold the summit in the Libyan coastal city of Sirte on Saturday and Sunday, also condemn the assassination as a "violation of the sovereignty and the security of the UAE," in the draft.

Israel's intelligence agency Mossad has been widely accused of Mabhuh's murder, including by the media in Israel, although the Jewish state has refused to confirm its involvement.

Dubai police in February released the names and photographs of suspects travelling with Western passports alleged to have been members of the hit squad which killed Mabhuh.

On Tuesday, Britain expelled an Israeli diplomat over the use of its passports, while investigations are still underway in the other countries.
