DHAKA: A woman collecting seashells says she has found one that bears an uncanny resemblance to the late terror leader Osama bin Laden.
Debra Oliver, 60, was on Winchelsea Beach, East Sussex with husband Martin, 62, to celebrate their 42nd wedding anniversary.
After discovering the shell on the floor she said that they ‘fell apart laughing’ and have kept it as a little memento, metro.co.uk reported.
Debra, from Brentford, west London, also pointed out the irony of the situation. She said: ‘funny that – he was buried at sea too.
She said: ‘It’s not that often you find a seashell that looks like anyone at all, so finding Osama bin Laden was amazing.
She took the shell home to remind herself forever of the day she met Osama bin Laden on Winchelsea Beach
‘We’d all gone for a walk on the beach, which is covered in millions and millions of shells and pebbles.
‘I was drawn to this curious-looking shell, and went to pick it up. When I looked at it properly up close, I thought it looked like Jesus.
‘I then saw a turban on the top, and realised who was staring up at me in the palm of my hand – Osama bin Laden.’
