Eleven people allegedly behind the murder of a senior Hamas figure in the United Arab Emirates are said to have used falsified passports.

Authorities from Britain, France and Ireland say the identities of the 11 European passports used in the operation to kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh appear to be stolen.

But Dubai police have said that at least seven member of the group share names with foreign-born Israelis, placing suspicion on the country's spy agency.
