Mistaken Identity: Cote D’Ivoire’s Ex-President’s Lookalike Attacked, Beaten Up In France
A man who was suspected to be the former president, Laurent Gbagbo, was attacked and beaten by some men who spotted him while walking on the streets of Paris.
As it turned out, it was a case of mistaken identity, as the man who was beaten and chased across the street was later seen to be an innocent man with strong facial resemblance with the Ivorien president.
