A woman has stumbled upon a seashell that bears a dramatic resemblance to the notorious al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.
This providential find was made by 60-year-old Debra Oliver on Winchelsea Beach. She and her spouse Martin, 62, were on a scenic walk on the beach when they unearthed the contentious Islamist leader’s similitude on a shell. During their stroll, one shell in particular caught her eye. Debra stated that she was ‘drawn to the curious looking’ shell and headed to retrieve it. After making the nonsensical find, Martin and Debra ‘fell apart laughing’ and chose to hold onto the shell ‘as a little memento’. She furthered that locating a shell that looks like Osama bin Laden specifically is ‘funny’, making a point: “He was buried at sea, too.” “It’s not that often you find a seashell that looks like anyone at all, so finding Osama bin Laden was amazing,” she continued.
“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 realized who was staring up at me in the palm of my hand – Osama bin Laden.” Osama bin Laden is best known for his part in masterminding the September 11, 2001 hi-jacking attacks on America. Roughly 3,000 people were killed on 9/11 and the USA then unveiled retaliatory attacks. Bin Laden eluded the grasp of the US armed forces for ten years until he was shot and killed on May 2, 2011 at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
