Osama bin Laden lookalike arrested twice

Look-alike arrested twice in bin Laden hunt

Pakistani intelligence agents have arrested Osama bin Laden twice, it was revealed yesterday. Or at least they have arrested a man who looks very much like the al-Qa'eda leader.

Bin Laden has chosen his putative hiding location very well for not only does the mountainous Afghan-Pakistan border provide seemingly impenetrable cover but also many of the local tribesmen, Pathans, resemble him.

A tribesman who is the doppelganger of the sheikh has now been arrested on two occasions, both times following reported sightings and massive manhunts, Pakistani intelligence officials reportedly told the American broadcaster, ABC News.

More than six feet tall and with the same aquiline nose as bin Laden, Sher Akbar comes from an Afghan village, Bagh e Metal, in an area where US officials believe bin Laden has been hiding.

Bin Laden is believed to be six feet four inches to six feet six inches tall. He is 50 years old.

The most recent arrest of the near-twin came after Afghani officials reported informants saw bin Laden moving across the border into Pakistan, near the town of Chitral.

"We arrested this man as a result of this investigation, but it's not who you might think it is," a senior Pakistani intelligence official told ABC News, providing a photograph to make his point.

Why black people black?

I don't think this man wanted to look like Osama bin Laden, but there's not much things he could do about the fact he does look like him.

sucks to be him.

You would think he would change his look up a bit now.

Can he really change the way he looks? That's hard to do.
