The boy confused with London bomber Hasib Hussain
Evidence showing that all three of the London bombers of Pakistani descent visited Pakistan last year has been thrown into doubt.
A photograph of a passport purporting to show bomber Hasib Hussain was in fact that of a 16-year-old British boy with the same name.
The photo, together with documentation showing two other bombers visited Pakistan, was published on Monday.
Pakistan, meanwhile, says it has made no arrests over the London bombs.
'I was terrified'
The passport details supposedly of the bomber Hasib Hussain are actually those of a teenage boy living in High Wycombe, approximately 30 miles (50km) north-west of London.
Passport details of the innocent Hasib Hussain
On Monday Pakistan's Federal Immigration Authority (FIA) said that Hasib Hussain, carrying a British passport number, arrived in the port city of Karachi from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia on 15 July 2004.
Photographs of the passport were published in Pakistan and then around the world.
However, the 16-year-old at the heart of the confusion has now been interviewed at his High Wycombe home by Pakistani TV station ARY.
"I first saw my photograph on Channel 4 news and I was terrified," the boy told ARY.
"I didn't want people looking at me saying, hey, you are supposed to be dead," he told ARY, "or someone saying that there goes the London bomber."

This reminds me of 9/11 and when several terrorists actually turned up to be alive. The names I guess were common and authorities didn't do enough investigation before making their announcements and quite a few innocent people ended up with their names on terror lists because of it.
