Man accused of murdering Daniel Pearl to be released this week?

A ruling by Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Monday paves the way for a man convicted of involvement in the gruesome 2002 murder of Jewish-American journalist Daniel Pearl to walk free later this week, The Associated Press reported on Monday.

The Supreme Court refused a government request to suspend a lower court’s ruling exonerating Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh of Pearl’s murder before a 90-day detention order expires on Thursday.
