British Times: Hit men injected Mabhouh with poisonous drug
The British Times newspaper on Sunday said that senior Hamas official Mahmoud Mabhouh was injected by a professional hit squad with a drug causing a heart attack in order to show that his death was natural.
The newspaper’s reporter Uzi Mahnaimi said that the hit squad that killed Mabhouh in his Dubai hotel room injected him with a drug that induced a heart attack, photographed all the documents in his briefcase and left a “do not disturb” sign on the door.
Mahnaimi added that the body of Mabhouh, 50, was discovered by staff at Al Bustan Rotana hotel after lunch on January 20. There were no suspicious signs and local doctors diagnosed at first the condition as a heart attack.
Nine days later, after blood samples sent to Paris for analysis, the results showed signs of poison in his body, the reporter affirmed.
