CAIRO - Egypt's most active militant Islamist group denied on Sunday reports that its top leader had been killed days earlier in the Sinai peninsula.

Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or Defenders of Jerusalem, rejected in an online statement claims by security sources and local media that Shadi al-Menei was killed with five other insurgents in a firefight on Friday.

"They announce the death of the brother jihadist Shadi al-Menei and that he is the (head of the group) while he was not killed and was not a leader", the statement said.
