UN alien ambassador a bogus story from The Sunday Times.

Reports about a UN alien ambassador got started when the Sunday Times reported that Mazlan Othman was in the running to be the first point of contact for alien visitors. Othman was reportedly set to appear at a Royal Society conference to say that extraterrestrial contact was more likely than ever, and that Earth needed a plan to deal with their arrival.
"It sounds really cool, but I have to deny it," Mazlan Othman said.
