Pakistan makes arrest in Daniel Pearl slaying

Pakistani officials have arrested a suspect in connection with the gruesome 2002 murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

Qari Abdul Hayee is believed to be the one who facilitated Pearl's kidnapping, a senior Pakistani official said.

Pearl was kidnapped while researching a story in Karachi about Pakistani militants and the so-called "shoe bomber" Richard Reid. He was later beheaded, and a video of his killing was sent to U.S. officials.
