An Iraqi insurgent umbrella group denied Tuesday that the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq was killed, saying he was alive and safe, according to an Internet statement. "The Islamic State of Iraq reassures the Ummah (nation) that Sheik Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, God protect him, is alive and he is still fighting the enemy of God," the Islamic State said in a written statement posted on a Web site commonly used by insurgents.
