Omar Osama Bin Laden has been in the news a bit recently, first for marrying a woman twice his age and now for saying he wants to be a “peace ambassador.”
That’s all well and good, but what’s eating me is the newspaper articles saying he bears a striking resemblance to his father, Osama Bin Laden.
I just don’t see it.
This is Omar, with the dreadlocks.
And this is his father.
I wouldn’t have guessed they were related. Omar has a rounder face, chubbier cheeks, a more prominent nose, and his eyes are closer together. The things they have in common are the eyes and the skin tone.
While Googling for research, I found that while seemingly dozens of news outlets had run the same story word for word, almost none of them included a photo so you could see what Omar looks like.
