Alleged Death of Ilyas Kashmiri

Bill Rogio of Long War Journal relayed a purported picture of the dead Ilyas Kashmiri, the terrorist who was supposedly killed by drone attacks in September 2009, and June 2011.
Sharp-eyed and long-memoried vdutta on the Bharat-Rakshak Forum recognized the picture as being that of someone else - (from a newsitem in December 2008, one of the Mumbai attackers)

So it remains to be seen whether the rumors of Kashmiri's death are true or not.
