Malaysian police Monday released images of two suspects in the killing of a Palestinian engineer and said they appeared to be European or Middle Eastern, fueling suspicion that the slaying was an Israeli assassination. Gaza's ruling Hamas group has accused Israel of being behind Saturday's shooting of Fadi al-Batsh, an important Hamas member.Fuzi Harun said the images have been displayed at all exit points in the country but said it was unclear if the men had fled Malaysia.Later its top leader accused Israel's Mossad intelligence agency of killing Batsh and threatened retaliation.Several noted, however, that Israel is routinely blamed for such assassinations even when it is not involved.Police say Batsh had lived in Malaysia for over seven years and had permanent residency status.
