Pajamas Media reported December 6 that Ayatollah Khamenei, the most powerful man in Iran and Ahmadinejads benefactor was admitted to the 12th Imam Hospital, apparently suffering from cancer in an advanced stage.
Now Pajamas is breaking that the good Ayatollah has shed his mortal coil.
A source close to Pajamas Media has learned that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has apparently succumbed to the cancer that hospitalized him last month, as exclusively reported by Pajamas Media, at age 67. He has been Iran’s most powerful figure since replacing Ayatollah Khomeini in the role of Supreme Leader in 1989.Only 67 years old. What a waste...
[UPDATE001] Ding dong, the Ayatollah is... not that dead yet. UPI:
Reports had surfaced on the internet Friday the 67 year-old Khamenei died. There were reports last month he was seriously ill.Sorry for getting everyones hopes up. Still, hope springs eternal...
But, Javad Zarif, Iran's ambassador to the United Nations, told United Press International, "There is no truth to that" when asked about the reports.
[UPDATE002] Pajamas Media has more.
