The UK is to expel a senior Israeli diplomat over cloned British passports used by the alleged assassins of a Hamas commander in Dubai.
Mossad, Israel’s secret service, has widely been blamed for the murder of Mahmoud al Mabhouh in January.
Dubai police investigating the case revealed some members of the suspected hit squad had travelled on British identities.
Their passports appeared to have been copied from real documents belonging to at least 12 Britons living in Israel.
Sky’s foreign affairs editor Tim Marshall said the Government was not taking action over the assassination, but the duplicated documents.
