Australia cops, In Israel to probe Dubai passports, involved in hit-and-run
Australian media report three officers hit Tel Aviv bicyclist, who was unhurt but wants an apology.
Three Australia police officers in Israel to investigate the misuse of Australian passports by suspected assassins of a Hamas leader in Dubai were involved in a hit-and-run accident on Wednesday, Australian news outlet ABC reported.
According to the report, the investigators spent the day at the Australian embassy in Tel Aviv where they planned to interview three dual nationals whose passports were forged and tied to the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai last month.
As they left the embassy, their car, with Australian embassy license plates, struck a bicyclist and did not stop, ABC reported, adding that the woman was unhurt but wants an apology from the embassy and a new bike wheel.
The embassy told the news site that it is investigating, but has not received a formal complaint from the woman and cannot confirm the accident took place.
