Death Behind the Headlines: Daniel Pearl

Jemelyn’s blog is on the deaths of journalists – there were allegedly 172 unlawful killings last year alone. Her latest post is on Daniel Pearl, an American journalist who was kidnapped and murdered. According to wikipdia: “At the time of his kidnapping, Pearl served as the South Asia Bureau Chief of the Wall Street Journal, stationed in Mumbai, India, and had been investigating the case of Richard Reid, the shoe bomber, and alleged links between Al Qaeda and Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), for which he went to Pakistan, and was subsequently beheaded there.”
