Mahmoud al-Mabhouh's Assassination Timeline (be careful who you make enemy's with)

By Channel 4 News
Updated on 17 February 2010
Dubai police have released a minute-by-minute account of events they say led to the assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh last month - most of which was caught on CCTV.

On 20 January Hamas military leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found dead in his Dubai hotel after an apparent assassination.
Dubai police have collated hours of CCTV footage in a bid to track down the people they believe killed the leader. In a 27-minute composite police have mapped-out the events they believe led to the murder in at the al-Bustan hotel.
19 Jan 2010
12:09 Nineteen hours before Mahmoud al-Mabhouh is found dead two suspects arrive in Dubai carrying passports with the names Michael Bodenheimer and James Leonard Clarke. Their documents state they are German and British nationals.
12:30 Two more suspects, including the only woman in the group, arrive from Paris holding Irish passports. They use the names Gail Folliard and Kevin Daveron.
01:00 Within the next hour all four suspects check in to two separate hotels in Dubai. Police believe the two pairs are surveillance teams sent ahead to gather intelligence on their target.
Officers believe that none of the suspects made direct calls to one another during their visit to Dubai - however a number of "suspicious" international phone calls were made to Austria, the suspected "command centre".
02:29 A man using the name of French national Peter Elvinger is met on his arrival in Dubai by another member of the team. Ten minutes later they both leave the airport in different directions and check in to hotels.
20 Jan 2010
10:30 Ten hours before al-Mabhouh is found dead a number of the suspects, including Miss Folliard, Mr Daveron and Peter Elvinger, arrive at a shopping centre separately. Within the next hour the suspects leave with Miss Folliard carrying a number of bags.

After 2 years, a family circle is complete

A Houston couple adopting a Haitian orphan thought the wait was over.
Then came the earthquake…


Holding her 6-week-old, Jude, Debra Parker hugs Ronel, 9, who arrived from Haiti on Thursday with his dad, Ernest Parker. New sister Carly, 12, and brother Colton, 10, were at the airport, too.
Debra Parker and three of her four children stood facing the baggage claim escalator at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. A semicircle of friends and family fanned out behind them. As step by rolling step flattened at the bottom, empty, the circle grew restless. Debra turned to look back at them.
“This is how I felt for two weeks,” she said.
Debra's husband, Ernest Parker, has spent the last two weeks sleeping on the waiting room floor of the American Embassy in Port-au-Prince, where he was picking up the family's long-awaited fourth child: 9-year-old Ronel. The Parkers have been trying to adopt the boy, an orphan who nearly starved to death, for two years.
Ronel was freed to immigrate to the U.S. after the recent earthquake, but a bureaucratic breakdown delayed his exit while Ernest haggled endlessly with Haitian and American officials.
