Dubai assassination has ties to Iowa bank

Posted:

SIOUX CITY (KWWL)-- The killing of an Islamic fundamentalist group leader has ties to a Northwest Iowa bank.

Dubai Police there say 14 suspects in the assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-mabhouh were issued credit cards by Metabank. It's based in Storm Lake.

The bank uses an online distribution service, called "payoneer," which the suspects likely used to obtain the cards.

Dubai Police say the suspects used the credit cards to book hotel rooms and flights.

Al-mabhouh was killed in his Dubai hotel room last in January.
