It was a spectacular attack straight out of a James Bond film. On Jan. 19, 2010, a team of Mossad agents killed Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a Palestinian weapons merchant who had killed an Israeli soldier 20 years previously. But the kill team made several key mistakes allowing them to be quickly identified. This image is from an observation camera in the hotel where the attack took place.
