Bulgaria: Merkel Spokesman: 'Obama' Killed Thousands A fake photo of Osama Bin Laden`s wounded head circulated on television and internet worldwide before being debunked as a fake. By BGNES

Stefen Seibert, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman, muddled the names of Osama bin Laden and US President Barack Obama on Tweeter Monday, making it seem that the latter killed thousands.

"Obama responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocents, made a mockery of the fundamental values of Islam and all religions", the tweet initially said, and even though quickly corrected, it was rapidly retweeted across Germany and beyond, DPA reports.

The tweet ran with a tag for the German chancellery.

Meanwhile, a gory photo of Osama Bin Laden's wounded head circulated on television and Internet worldwide before being debunked as a fake. It turned out to be a reworked image of bin Laden, originally taken in 2009, The Telegraph and many other media sources have claimed with certainty.
