Jabhat al-Nusra denies report on leader's death

The Syrian rebel group Jabhat al-Nusra commented on a Syrian TV report, according to which the group's leader, abu-Mohamed al-Golani, was killed. The group denied the report and stated the leader is well.

 

On Friday night the Syrian state TV channel reported al-Golani was killed on the suburb of Latakia in northwestern Syria. It later inexplicably removed the report from its website. (News agencies)
