The leader of Syria's Islamist militant group al-Nusra Front has been killed in the country's coastal province on Friday, said Syrian state TV, although state news agency SANA quickly withdrew an alert saying the same thing.

"The terrorist Abu Mohammad al-Golani, chief of the al-Nusra Front affiliated to al-Qaeda, has been killed in the campaign in the northwestern province of Latakia," television said, according to AFP.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which closely monitors the fighting in Syria, said senior Nusra Front leaders contacted by activists in Latakia and the eastern Deir el-Zour province denied al-Golani had been killed.
