Polish authorities have arrested an alleged Mossad agent wanted in connection with the killing of a Hamas leader in Dubai, the German federal prosecutor’s office said today.

Germany is now seeking Uri Brodsky’s extradition, a prosecutor’s spokesman told the Associated Press.

The spokesman said 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 hit squad that was allegedly behind the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in January.

He said Brodsky was arrested in early June upon his arrival in Poland because of a European arrest warrant issued by Germany.
