The Pakistani military has arrested another man suspected of involvement in the 2002 murder of Daniel Pearl. From the Wall Street Journal:
A 2011 report by Georgetown University and the Center for Public Integrity found that U.S. officials had corroborated Mr. Mohammed's admission by matching the veins of the hands on a videotape of Mr. Pearl's beheading with those of Mr. Mohammed. Asra Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, was involved in the report.The report, an investigation of the abduction and execution,plots the alleged involvement of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi in the murder of Mr. Pearl. It names a Lashkar-e-Jhangvi operative known as Abdul Hayee—a different spelling of the name but believed to be the same person—as one of the men who guarded Mr. Pearl after his kidnapping.
The report said the operative was arrested in the eastern Punjab province in 2003 on suspicion of killing six people from the minority Shiite Islamic sect. It said he later was released and was living in Punjab. Pakistani media reports from 2003 said "Abdul Hayee," a Lashkar-e-Jhangvi leader, was arrested that year in Punjab and had connections to the murder of Mr. Pearl.
The Pakistan Rangers, at a recent news briefing, said the man they identified as Mr. Hayyee had been previously arrested in Punjab in 2003 but was later released due to lack of evidence, according to a Pakistani journalist who attended a briefing by the Rangers in Karachi.
