KARACHI, May 16: The Karachi police on Thursday reportedly recovered the body of Daniel Pearl, the slain correspondent of the Wall Street Journal.

While the top brass of the city police was in a meeting at the residence of the provincial home secretary, some senior officials in the police department said that they had recovered a body somewhere at the Super Highway and it was being examined on the spot to ascertain its identity. Other reports said that the body was recovered from the Western part of the city.

“I can only say that the subject of the meeting is Daniel Pearl and you can expect some startling disclosure any moment,” a senior police official told this reporter.

Other sources in the police department said that the body was recovered following a tip off, from three suspects arrested by the CID, earlier in the day. However, these sources failed to confirm the identity of the arrested suspects.
