A woman has claimed a seashell she discovered on a British beach looks exactly like Osama Bin Laden.
Debra Oliver, 60, made the discovery at seaside village Winchelsea Beach, East Sussex, last November.
She was “drawn to the curious-looking” shell during a walk with husband Martin, 62, as they celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary.
Legal secretary Debra said she picked up the object and noticed it resembled the al-Qaeda terrorist.
The woman, from Brentford, west London, “fell apart laughing” and kept it “as a little memento”.
She said: “It’s not that often you find a seashell that looks like anyone at all, so finding Osama bin Laden was amazing.
“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.”
She added: “Funny that – as he was buried at sea too.”
Although most people believed the seashell resembled terrorist Bin Laden, others thought it looked like ex-Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Khomeini.
Osama bin Laden was the founder of the militant Islamist organisation al-Qaeda and mastermind of numerous terrorist attacks, including the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.
He was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.
