Do you recognize this terrorist?
FBI issues computer generated photos of al-Qaeda chief Bin Laden as part of manhunt

Do you recognize this man? The United States has published computer generated photographs of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden as part of the ongoing American effort to nab him.

 

US troops have been unable to capture the terror mastermind despite a $50 million reward offered for information leading to his detainment.

 

Can you spot the differences?

 

While Bin Laden's voice has been heard in audiotapes, he has not been seen for many years, prompting US officials to release the computer imaging in a bid to offer a glimpse into the way the terror leader may look like today. The photos, produced by the FBI, indicate that Bin Laden is believed to have considerably aged in recent years.

 

In one of the photos released by the US, Bin Laden is seen wearing Western clothing, with his beard neatly trimmed and his hair graying. In a second picture the al-Qaeda leader is seen wearing his tradition Muslim garb.

 

In addition to Bin Laden, the FBI published various computer generated photographs of another 17 terror suspects. The images are available on the US State Department's website.
