Police in Malaysia's Bukit Aman headquarters released a photograph of one of the men who allegedly killed Hamas terrorist and engineer Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh on Saturday night.

Bukit Aman Police Inspector General Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said eyewitnesses identified the first suspect after they discovered his motorbike.

Harun also said he believes the suspect is still in Malaysia and may change his appearance or use false documentation, refusing to comment on whether the shooting was carried out by foreign agents.

"It was very professionally done," Reuters quoted Harun as saying.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman Sunday denied claims of the Jewish state's involvement, suggesting instead that it was a "settling of accounts" between factions of a terror group.
