ADEN - An Islamist group linked to al Qaida has denied that its media chief was killed in an air raid in southern Yemen two weeks ago.

The group, Ansar al-Sharia (Partisans of Islamic Law), also took responsibility for an explosion at France's Total gas pipeline in mid-October that halted supplies to the Belhaf LNG plant.

In leaflets distributed in mosques and markets in Yemen's southern Shabwa province, it described government reports of Ibrahim al-Banna's killing as "lies."
