Pakistani police have arrested two Islamic militants, including one suspected of involvement in the kidnap and killing of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, an officer said Tuesday. The two men, Sajid Jabbar and Mohammad Athar, were arrested in an overnight raid in the port city of Karachi and belong to the outlawed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi group, Fayyaz Leghari, chief of the investigation branch of Karachi police, told Reuters. Another senior officer, who did not want to be identified, said Jabbar was suspected of involvement in the kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Pearl in 2002 as well as several other militant attacks. “He carries a reward of 500,000 rupees ($8,700) on his head,” the officer said.
