A posting on an Islamist Web site stirred speculation over the fate of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and prompted a flurry of denials on Friday that the world's most wanted man is dead.
The entry on the www.albawaba.com Web site began by saying there was news bin Laden had died but went on to say that the fugitive militant could die at any time and Muslims should be prepared.
"We have now found out this urgent news item, whereby the Al-Qaida organization has announced the death of bin Laden," read Thursday's message on the Web site, Manbar Ahal A-Suna V'al Jama'a.
Over the last few weeks, the site has been publishing messages purportedly stemming from Al-Qaida.
However, it is unclear whether the information posted on the site is credible, since backers of sites such as this one are generally anonymous, as are their sources.
