Bin Laden Look-Alike Told to Keep on Moving

November 07, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

An unemployed 45-year-old man who looks like Saudi-born militant Osama bin Laden was ordered out of an Indian town after he started to draw crowds, a local official said.

The man with a flowing beard and slim frame drew attention when he arrived Monday at Daspalla in the eastern state of Orissa, seeking work.

"The action was taken in good faith to prevent any kind of communal tensions," the official said.
