The alleged photo a passport of one of the London Bombers, showing he had visited Pakistan, has turned out to the that of a 16 year old British boy of
the same name.
He lives 30 miles from London and first heard of the news when he saw his passport on Televison.
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.

This is clearly a mistake, though how did it pass their attention as they must have seen the birth date did not tie up. It's distubing that this
mistake made it all the way to the media before being picked up, while I know it is impossible for anyone to prevent attacks from happening (they
can't even do it in a fictional TV show like Star Trek let alone real life), due to no-ones actual fault, you would have thought that a mistake like
this would be picked up sooner.
What would have been worse is if the boy had been murdered due to this inexcusable blunder.
