AUSTRALIAN Federal Police agents are believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run car accident less than 12 hours after arriving in Israel to investigate the use of passports of three Australians in last month's Dubai assassination.
In an extraordinary turn of events, a car screeched out of the car park under the Australian Embassy in Tel Aviv and hit a woman riding a bicycle, who was not seriously injured.
But the car did not stop, instead continuing on its high-speed journey.
The Australian Embassy last night confirmed it was investigating the incident but would not confirm that the car that hit the woman contained the three AFP agents.
An embassy spokeswoman said as part of the investigation embassy officials had spoken to the driver of the car. She would not say what he had said had occurred.

Australian feds involved in a hit-and-run on an Israeli cyclist in Tel Aviv - requires an internal investigation.
The woman, Oshra Bar, told one media outlet last night: I want an apology and a new wheel. I was hit and I kind of bounced.
The Australian Federal Police owes Oshra Bar an apology in Hebrew, a new bike and helmet.
Wow, this is extraordinary. People with diplomatic immunity behaving like asses in another country.
Stop the presses. Then start the presses. Then stop them again to put an extra exclamation point on this headline.
“The Australian Federal Police owes Oshra Bar an apology in Hebrew, a new bike and helmet.”
In Hebrew, even. I guess the next person that apologizes to me must do so in Gaelic.
It is kind of pathetic when the investigators end up being investigated.
I wonder if the Aussies have been had by Mossad.
I was thinking it was a Toyota article.
That would be my cop out. The accelerator stuck, the floor mat did it, it sped up on its own, the brakes wouldn't stop it. Choose one.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Cute. Guess 008 and 009 were in a hurry, Soviet agents on their tail or something like that. I presume the driver has immunity, though that may not be the case.
That brings back fond memories. It's been 20 years or more since I was able to bounce , nowadays it's more of a splat
