CCTV footage relating to the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh

The video itself is safe for work; it contains a collection of CCTV camera footage from the hotel depicting the preparations for the killling at about the 23:00 mark.  This is a long video and would be frankly tedious without the associated importance of the event.  It's revealing re the activities of real-life hit squads and the amazing surveillance capabilities of modern hotels.

Those unfamiliar with the assassination can read the Wikipedia summary (or a hundred other commentaries and analyses on the web).

  1. Fascinating stuff. The murder seemed to be by administration of some sort of drug or poison as the victim's door was locked/chained from the inside. I wonder why a total of 4 oversized "thugs" were required to carry out the "hit". I also found it interesting that none of the team members seemed to be the least bit concerned with the surveillance cameras that were everywhere. Seems that some of these movies may not be so far fetched after all.
