UNESCO chief condemns barbaric murder of US reporter

PARIS- The director general of the United Nations cultural organisation (UNESCO) on Friday condemned the murder of US reporter Daniel Pearl as “a shocking act of barbarism”.

“This gruesome crime is especially repugnant in view of the motives that appear to have driven its perpetrators: the fact that Daniel Pearl was an investigative reporter seeking to shed light on an important story of international concern, the fact he was a US citizen and the fact he was a Jew,” Koichiro Matsuura said in a statement.
