Poland today extradited a suspected Mossad agent to Germany, where he faces charges over a passport that was used in the murder of a Hamas leader in Dubai earlier this year.

Police said the man known as Uri Brodsky was handed over this afternoon to German police at Warsaw’s international airport.

A man was seen at the airport wearing a hooded jacket pulled over his face to hide his identity as he was escorted by masked anti-terror police.

Brodsky appeared that way during several appearances at courts in Warsaw.

German prosecutors accuse him of illegally helping to procure a passport used in connection with the murder on January 19 of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
