Family denies death of Hezbollah militant in Pakistan

I quoted Earth Times on Monday saying that a UN drone strike in Pakistan killed a Hezbollah member, Mohammed Ali Hamadi.

It turns out that this person is a well-known terrorist. He is (or was) one of the hijackers  of TWA Flight 847 in 1985, along with, Imad Mugniyah, when a US Navy diver was killed. He is on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists list.

His family is being quoted in Al Quds al-Arabi that he was not killed or that he was even in Pakistan but they are not saying where he is. Hezbollah has been silent on the matter.
