Daniel Pearl’s widow drops lawsuit against al-Qaeda

Filed under: Uncategorized — barabie @ 1:44 am

The widow of murdered US journalist Daniel Pearl has withdrawn a lawsuit seeking damages against al-Qaeda, a dozen reputed terrorists and Pakistan’s largest bank.

In a letter to the US judge presiding over the case, lawyers for Mariane Pearl noted that Habib Bank Limited and the other defendants had not answered the lawsuit filed in July, but they otherwise did not explain their reason for dropping the action.

The lawsuit had sought unspecified damages against people and organisations that Mariane Pearl alleged were involved in the kidnapping, torture and murder of her husband.
