London - (Aldrich Ames Mess): The spotlight is on a UK-based KGB passport forgery gang suspected of issuing fake IDs to a Mossad hit squad behind the Dubai assassination of Hanmas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
The shadowy counterfeitters are believed to be stationed at a secret Qatari intelligence (sic) safe house located at 25 The Gables, Acacia Avenue, Pratt's Bottom.
They have raked in the $$$s in a longstanding dastardly forgery campaign ever since issuing Princes William and Harry with their royal birth certificates.
Today's arrival in London of a crack FBI team has sent the fakers scurrying to a new secret location deep beneath the bowels of No 10 Downing Street.
MI5 sources said today they are confident the ringleaders have now all been corralled by a 10 year surveillance operation.
This has identified major UK supermarkets as the global brand leaders in international terror franchising.
"Remarkable value in this Buy-One-Get-One-Free detente climate," ex-MI5 CEO Dame Eliza Bullying-Manor commented today.
