Polish authorities extradited a suspected Mossad agent to Germany yesterday, where he faces charges over a passport that was used in the slaying of a Hamas leader in Dubai earlier this year.

The suspect known as Uri Brodsky was handed over to German police at Warsaw's international airport, a police spokesman said. A photographer saw a man at the airport wearing a hooded jacket pulled over his face as he was escorted by anti-terror police.

German prosecutors accuse Mr Brodsky of illegally helping to procure a passport used in connection with the murder in January of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh at a hotel in Dubai.
