"Hang on a minute, check out the passport photos again. hardly any of them would be approved when applying for a passport:
"The photographs you supply with your application must:
-show you with a neutral expression and your mouth closed (no grinning, frowning or raised eyebrows)
-be of you facing forward and looking straight at the camera
-be taken with your eyes open and clearly visible (no sunglasses or tinted glasses and no hair across your eyes)
-be free from reflection or glare on your glasses, and the frames must not cover your eyes - the Identity and Passport Service (IPS) recommends that, if possible, you remove your glasses " "
A British man in Israel with the same name as an alleged member of a hit squad that assassinated a top Hamas militant in Dubai said his identity had been stolen. Melvyn Adam Mildiner said he was 'angry, upset and scared' over what he called a misidentification. He spoke as the Foreign Office confirmed the British passports used in the killing were fraudulent. The FCO has launched an investigation, it said in a statement.
