    "Driver tried to hit Osama lookalike

    A French motorist has been given a three-month suspended prison sentence for doing his level best to run over a pedestrian he mistakenly identified as Osama bin Laden.
    The self-employed man of 35, named only as Pierre, was found guilty in the southern city of Montpellier on Tuesday of pursuing his intended victim through several red lights and then into a pedestrian zone.

    The pedestrian only narrowly avoided being mown down when the car finally ran into a wall. " Not the whole story.
