A dead ringer? The Colombian car parking security guard who is an Osama Bin Laden lookalike
Evil mastermind, cowardly plotter, hero to terrorists... the late Osama Bin Laden was many things, but a style icon?
Yet car parking security guard Hasmet Hichster Londono has been dressing like him for years right down to the trademark long white beard.
In one of the world's most dangerous countries, he probably has more to fear from Colombia's gangs than the Navy Seals but you have to admire his bravery.
Terror-ble look: Hasmet Hichster Londono has been dressing up as Osama Bin Laden for several years - and even guards a car park with a fake gun
In the South American country’s capital, Londono works as a car park guard in the Santafe neighbourhood and is armed at all times.
He changed his look after someone showed him a picture of the 9-11 mastermind.
The real Bin Laden was killed last Sunday by a crack team of U.S. special forces but the conspiracy theorists are already prepared to speculate he is still alive.

Taliban leaders say they will not accept that he’s been killed until they see photographic proof.
This news is only coming from one side, from Obama’s office, and America has not shown any evidence or proof to support this claim,’ Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement.
However, Barack Obama was forced to insist last night that he is ‘absolutely certain’ Osama bin Laden is dead.

Mr Obama cited ‘national security’ as the reason for not providing photographic evidence of his death.
It follows fierce debate among the President's senior advisers, many of whom had pushed for him to release the gruesome final shots of the Al Qaeda leader.
It was hoped that releasing the images would also put an end to the wild conspiracy theories that Bin Laden was still alive.
But within minutes of the White House announcement, graphic photographs - thought to show Bin Laden's son, a trusted courier and another aide killed in the raid - were made public today.
