The Canadian police have arrested a suspect in the assassination of a Hamas militant in Dubai but offered no information on the matter, the police chief of Dubai, Dahi Khalfan Tamim, said Tuesday. Assassins killed Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in his Dubai hotel room in January. Israeli intelligence agents were widely blamed for the killing, a large-scale operation that involved suspects who wore disguises and held passports from countries including Britain, France, Germany and Australia. There has been one previous arrest in the case. A suspected Israeli agent was detained in Poland in August and handed over to Germany, which released him on bail. The man was suspected of fraudulently obtaining a German passport believed to have been used by a member of the assassination team.
