Police arrested two suspected terrorists wanted for the 2002 kidnapping and murder of US journalist Daniel Pearl, an official said Tuesday. Attaur Rehman and Faisal Bhatti were arrested Monday in Kashmor, a town some 500 kilometers (300 miles) northeast of Karachi, said Saghir Mugheri, a local police officer. Mugheri said both men were alleged members of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, an armed group linked to al-Qaida. He said they were suspected of involvement in the kidnapping and murder of the Wall Street Journal reporter, but did not elaborate. Mugheri said police seized them in a car traveling toward Baluchistan province, and weapons and explosives were found in the vehicle.
