Sarkozy condemns assassination of Hamas official

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has reiterated his condemnation of the assassination of a Hamas official in Dubai and insisted "nothing positive" comes of such killings.
Sarkozy was hosting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris on Monday. He said France cannot accept such "executions."
The EU is questioning Israel about falsified European passports used in the Jan. 20 assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Suspicion has fallen on a hit squad from Israel's Mossad spy agency, after Israel linked al-Mabhouh to arms smuggling into Gaza and the slaying of two Israeli soldiers.
Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos said Monday in Brussels he would ask Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman about the killing.
