Daniel Pearl
FameRank: 10

"Daniel Pearl" was a journalist with United States/American and Israeli citizenship. He was kidnapped by Pakistani militants and later murdered in Pakistan.

Pearl was kidnapping/kidnapped while working as the South Asia Bureau Chief of The Wall Street Journal, based in Mumbai, India. He had gone to Pakistan as part of an investigation into the alleged links between Richard Reid (terrorist)/Richard Reid (the "shoe bomber") and Al-Qaeda. He was subsequently killed by his captors.

In July 2002, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a British Pakistanis/British national of Pakistani origin, was sentenced to death by hanging for Pearl's abduction and murder. In March 2007, at a closed military hearing in Guantanamo Bay detention camp/Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed stated that he had personally beheaded Pearl. Al-Qaeda member Saif al-Adel has also been connected with the kidnapping.
