Journalist and the Jihadi: The Murder of Daniel Pearl
Narrated by CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour, this 80 minute film tracks the parallel lives of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl and British-born jihadi Omar Sheikh. Both men were passionate, intelligent individuals from privileged backgrounds, and both were sympathetic to the plight of Muslims around the world, though Pearl was Jewish. With the rise of Islamic militancy in the 1990s, however the two men's paths diverged; in 2002, those paths collided when Sheikh executed cunning con game that ended in Pearl's headline-making kidnapping and murder in Pakistan and the remorseless Sheikh's arrest under mysterious circumstances.
