JERUSALEM - The United Arab Emirates has identified four more European passport-holders suspected in the Dubai killing of a Hamas commander last month, a source in the UAE familiar with the investigation said Tuesday.

"The UAE has identified two British suspects holding British travel documents, and as part of the ongoing investigation has shared the information with the British government," the source said.

Two more suspects holding Irish passports were also identified, the source added.

The new claim reportedly brings the tally of fraudulent British passports used to eight, and Irish identities used to five.

The six previously announced British identities used by the killers were all traced to British citizens living in Israel, who say their identities were stolen.

The Dubai authorities had already released the identities of 11 people who traveled on forged British, Irish, French and German passports to kill Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a hotel on January 20.

European Union foreign ministers protested Monday against the use of forged European passports in the killing, but stopped well short of blaming Israel for the undercover action.
