In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
A number of western media outlets are reporting that Badruddin Haqqani has been killed. We would like to inform all media that this rumor is not correct, Badruddin is alive and in good health in Afghanistan. Badruddin Haqqani is in the country and is occupied with his operational responsibilities. The rumor about him being killed is enemy fatuous propaganda to divert peoples attention from its humiliating defeat.
