In a glaring slip of tongue, Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate LK Advani on Friday uttered the name "Obama bin Laden" instead of the infamous Osama bin Laden but quickly corrected himself.

Advani, while addressing a press conference here, was referring to an initiative of US President Barack Obama's administration to target tax havens from where Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden may have been getting funds. But instead of Osama, Advani said “Obama bin Laden”!
