Melbourne, June 03 (ANI): British Airways has clarified that an error led to the publication of a fake boarding pass in the name of the world's most wanted man, Osama bin Laden, in one of its magazines.

The photo of the 9/11 accused was published in LHR News, an internal company magazine covering London's Heathrow Airport.

British Airways said through its Twitter channel: "A mistake has been made in this internal publication and we are working to find out how this occurred."

The photo was published alongside an article on a new mobile phone boarding system, which allows smartphone users to print out their boarding passes when they're away from their desks.
