An Arab newspaper reports that an al-Qaeda member says that bin Laden has placed 10 decoys, who look just like him, in Afghanistan to foil U.S. attempts to capture him.
The London-based al-Hayat daily quotes ?Abul Noor? (a pseudonym) as saying, ?Even if the American attacks against Afghanistan succeeded in finishing the Taliban movement, they would not succeed in arresting bin Laden. Not merely because that is difficult, but because bin Laden has 10 lookalikes. Two of them are north Africans and they all are in Afghanistan.? He claims the only physical differences between the decoys and the real bin Laden are the birthmarks on their backs.
