DUBAI - A Twitter account run by an Qaeda member said the leader of the al-Qaida-linked Khorasan group was killed in a U.S. air strike in Syria, SITE monitoring service said on Sunday, following several days of uncertainty over whether he survived the raid.

A US official on Sept. 24 said the United States believed Mohsin al-Fadhli, a senior al-Qaida operative, had been killed in a strike a day earlier, but the Pentagon said several hours later that it was still investigating what had happened to him.
