Ex-senator's death not confirmed-family friend

WASHINGTON, Aug 10 (Reuters) - A family friend of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens said he has not received confirmation that the lawmaker had died in a plane crash overnight, despite previous television reports that quoted the friend as saying that he had perished.

The friend, Dave Dittman, told local Alaska news outlets that he had been told Stevens had died in the crash, but in a new statement said “that has not been confirmed.” (Reporting by Jeremy Pelofsky, editing by Stacey Joyce)
