Daniel Pearl (October 10, 1963 – February 1, 2002) was Jewish journalist from the United States who was kidnapped and executed in Karachi, Pakistan. At the time of his kidnapping, Pearl served as the South Asia Bureau Chief of the Wall Street Journal, and was based in Mumbai, India. He went to Pakistan as part of an investigation into the alleged links between Richard Reid, the shoe bomber, and Al-Qaeda and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). He was subsequently beheaded by his captors.
