Police in Pakistan have nabbed two men suspected of involvement in the 2002 kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. The two suspects —alleged members of a Al Qaeda affiliate—were picked up traveling in a car full of weapons and explosives, police said. One of them, Attaur Rehman, allegedly supervised Pearl's imprisonment in a shack before he was killed.
But a human rights lawyer claims that the two men have actually been in police custody since 2003, when they were seized in Karachi. According to the lawyer, the men's families have heard nothing from them since that point. Pakistan has already convicted three other militants for their roles in the Pearl murder.
