#1 update Lebanese Terror Group Denies Hizbullah's Nasrallah Has Cancer The Turkish Anatolia News Agency reported Tuesday that Nasrallah had been admitted to a private hospital in Beirut and later flown to Tehran, where he is being treated for cancer. The report cited "knowledgeable sources affiliated with Hizbullah" and followed a flurry of others over a 24 hour period in Lebanon.
All reports said Hizbullah's secretary-general was ill and had been flown to a hospital in Iran for treatment.
One Jordanian news website raised the possibility on Monday that Nasrallah had been injured by shelling from the Free Syrian Army during clashes with forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war.
But a Hizbullah official denied all reports that Nasrallah might be injured or in ill health in an interview on Tuesday with the Al-Mayadeen satellite television network.
