More Fallout from Israeli Hamas Assassination

Australia has expelled an Israeli diplomat over the Dubai killing of a Hamas leader.

Australia has expelled an Israeli diplomat after a probe revealed Israel was behind the forging of four Australian passports linked to the murder of a Hamas operative in Dubai.

Foreign Minister Stephen Smith told parliament that Israel's conduct was "not the actions of a friend".

Britain took similar action in March, concluding there was strong evidence that Israel was responsible for the use of doctored UK passports in the plot.

The Hamas man was killed in January.
