Artist's impression of the crime scene

Brussels - Police have drafted in face recognition experts after an oil executive resembling Tony Blair was gunned down outside an Italian restaurant in Belgium.

ExxonMobil executive Nicholas Mockford and his wife had just finished dinner when hit 'n' run assailants struck on October 14th.

The shooting was described by Belgian federal law enforcement sources as a possible case of 'mistaken identity' given the victim's uncanny facial similarity to the former UK Prime Monster.

"Actually, he looked quite a bit like Britain's Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General Francis Maud MP," a waiter from neighboring restaurant L'Oiseau Assoiffée commented, "who also resembles Mr Blair.

"Perhaps that is a clue in this fast-evolving drama?"

This morning bosses at the US energy giant where Mockford worked said he'd been based at their European chemicals division where he was in charge of marketing something called 'interim technologies'.

A news blackout was imposed by police until late last night amid security implications in the case.

Texas-based ExxonMobil is the world's largest energy company whose profits, along with those of ChevronTexaco, have been described by Wall Street analysts as having propped up the US economy for the last 20 years.

Expect an update on this breaking story as more details emerge from the Brussels morgue.
