Mossad under scrutiny

Investigators launched a government inquiry at a secret location yesterday into Israel's bungled attempt to kill a leader of the Islamic militant Hamas group in Jordan, an Israeli spokesman said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, having ordered Mossad secret agents to assassinate Hamas political chief Khaled Meshal last month, appointed a three-man "clarification committee" last week to investigate the affair.

A spokesman, Moshe Fogel, said the committee was taking testimony at an undisclosed security installation. He declined to elaborate.
