Somali opposition leader says alive, not dead

A Somali opposition leader denied on Monday reports that he had been seriously wounded in fighting between rival groups in the Horn of Africa nation.

"You see that I am physically healthy and fit. No injuries at all. That is propaganda spread by the enemy when they were defeated in the recent fighting in central Somalia," Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys told Reuters in Mogadishu.

A family member and a militia opposed to Aweys and his group Hizbul Islam said on Sunday the leader he had been seriously wounded, or killed.

Aweys has headed various opposition groups since the 1990s.
