Sinai Group Denies Leader was Killed

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the Al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist group based in the Sinai Peninsula, denied Sunday that its leader has been killed, days after security sources said the group's commander Shadi al-Menei had been shot dead in an ambush.

According to AFP, the group also denied Menei was its leader, in a statement published on Islamist Internet forums accompanied by a picture of him reading a report about his "death" on a laptop.
