Do these guys look like terrorists?


Or Bollywood film stars?

These are the two lads who were flying from Malaga to Manchester (they're actually students) and were thrown off because the other passengers thought they looked like terrorists (see earlier story).

How easy is it to tell who they are just by looking at them? Well we can use stereotypes, or as they say themselves:

"We might be Asian, but we're two ordinary lads who wanted a bit of fun," Mr Ashraf told the Daily Mirror.

"Just because we're Muslim does not mean we are suicide bombers."

The pair were marched off the jet at gunpoint after fellow passengers alerted officials on the flight back from Malaga, Spain.

Or maybe they're just litigants in a wrongful detention case.
