ISLAMABAD—President Arif Ali on Monday deleted his tweet condoling the death of the former Prime Minister Zafarulllah Jamali after it was confirmed that he was still alive, though on a ventilator.
Daily Express published the news on its website. The headline announcing the death was still on the website at 8:00 pm on Monday, but the story was missing, with a message in Urdu saying the page is not available.
President Alvi was quick to issue a clarification on Twitter. “I have deleted the tweet, based on wrong info with apologies to the family. Mir Zafarullah Jamali is on the ventilator. I talked to Omar Jamali who confirmed this. May Allah grant him immediate recovery.”
