Twins separated at birth?
A 26 year-old man traveling to Pakistan using his sister’s passport “passed three security checks unchallenged before boarding a flight to Islamabad.” Just one of the reasons why the UK may well be al-Qaeda’s next major target.
“Man flies to Pakistan using sister’s passport,” from the Daily Times, December 30:
LONDON: The British authorities are investigating how a United Kingdom (UK) citizen flew to Pakistan using his sister’s passport before he was discovered by Pakistani officials and sent back.
According to a report in The Times, 26-year-old Kasim Raja from Moseley, Birmingham, travelled to Pakistan unknowingly on his younger sister’s passport.
Following the incident, security at Britain’s Birmingham airport was criticised as “˜a total failure”.
Raja passed three security checks unchallenged before boarding a flight to Islamabad. It was only on arrival that passport control staff noticed the error and he was sent back to the UK.
