Poland arrests Mossad spy over Dubai killing of Hamas man
 
Polish authorities have arrested a suspected Mossan spy who is wanted by Germany in connection with the Dubai assassination of a top Hamas official, the German federal prosecutor's office said on Saturday.
 
Along with other western nations, Germany was angry that its passports were used by the Mossad in assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh to death in a hotel room on January 19.

"He was arrested in Warsaw and is suspected of being involved in illegally obtaining a [German] passport," a spokesman for German federal prosecution said.
 
A man using the name of Uri Brodsky is suspected of working for a foreign spy agency in Germany and helping issue a fake German passport to a member of the Mossad
 
The authorities have not given other details, saying Poland had not yet formally decided to extradite him.

"It's now up to the Poles to decide if they are going to hand him over to Germany," the spokesman said, confirming a report in German magazine Der Spiegel.

Der Spiegel will report Monday that the suspect, Uri Brodsky, was arrested early June on arrival at Warsaw's airport on suspicions that he helped a member of the hit squad get a German passport in June 2009.
