Family of Hamas figure seeks to block Israel movie
Family of slain Hamas operative seeks to prevent release of Israeli movie about his killing
By The Associated Press

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) ' The family of a slain Hamas operative seeks to block the release of a movie being made in Israel about his 2010 assassination in a Dubai hotel.

The killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was widely blamed on Israel's Mossad spy agency.

Emmanuel Nakash, the French-Israeli director of "Kidon," or Spear, has said his movie is not meant to be factual. In a plot twist, a gang of criminals murder al-Mabhouh to frame the Mossad. One scene shows al-Mabhouh, a senior figure in an Islamic fundamentalist group, flirting in a hotel bar.

Ahmed al-Mabhouh, a cousin of the Hamas operative, said Sunday that the family feels the movie is a distortion and plans to go to court to prevent its release. He says details such as which court should be the venue of the lawsuit are still being worked out.
