A WOMAN was shocked when she found a seashell that looks just like terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Debra Oliver, 60, found the distinctive shell on Winchelsea beach near Rye.

It bears a striking resemblance to the al-Qaida boss.

She was “drawn to the curious-looking” find as she went for a walk while celebrating her 42nd wedding anniversary with her husband Martin, 62.

Legal secretary Debra realised it bore an uncanny resemblance to the September 11 mastermind.

She remarked: “Funny that – he was buried at sea too.”

Debra, of Brentsford, 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.”

Other members of the family thought the seashell also resembled ex-supreme leader of Iran Ayatollah Khomeini.
