Daniel Pearl Beheading Suspect Killed

Amjad Hussain Farooqi, a man under indictment for beheading Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in 2002, has been killed by Pakistani "paramilitary police." Farooqi was also suspected of being involved in two assasination attempts against Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Daniel Pearl (graphic images, warning)was the first Western beheading victim by terrorists, and was killed long before the US invasion of Iraq.

A moment of editorializing: good riddance. Amjad Hussain Farooqi can rot in hell.

Also on the scene: James Joyner.
