So what ever happened on Dubai assassination of Hamas official?

Soon after the January assassination of a top Palestinian official, Dubai police stumbled onto what looked like a big break in the case.

They linked a white-haired man with glasses to several suspects caught on security cameras preparing for the murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Most of the suspects in the case had carriedforged passports, but this man had a real British one. It identified him as 62-year-old Christopher Lockwood.

The findings raised hopes of nabbing one of the orchestrators of the hit, possibly providing proof for accusations by Dubai police that Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad was behind it. But just as quickly, the trail went cold.

Quick work by Dubai police and a diplomatic furor over the use of dozens of forged passports in the case fed early optimism that at least some of the 30-plus suspects would be found.

But a string of apparent dead ends has frustrated international investigators, lengthening the odds that anyone will be caught or that definitive proof of Mossad involvement will emerge. And despite an initial burst of tough talk from various governments, some international investigators are concerned that politics may be hampering cooperation from some governments that support Israel.

Two senior American officials acknowledge the case is unusually sensitive because of Washington’s close ties with Israel, and U.S. efforts to improve counterterrorism cooperation with U.A.E.
