BEIRUT: A statement from Caretaker Education Minister Hassan Diab’s office denied rumors that the minister died in a road accident. 

The statement assured the Lebanese Thursday that Diab is “well and he’s performing his duties at the ministry as usual,” after rumors he died circulated through text messages.

The statement also accused an “unknown side” of circulating text messages saying that MTV television channel has reported that the education minister was killed in a traffic accident.

MTV confirmed that the report was a hoax, the statement added. The television channel promptly issued a denial.

The ministry called on security agencies to pursue the perpetrators and punish them.
