Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, kidnapped last month on his way to interview a Muslim fundamentalist leader in Pakistan, has been killed by his abductors, officials said Thursday. The U.S. government condemned his killing as "an outrage" and his newspaper called it an "act of barbarism." President Bush said Thursday that "barbaric acts" like the murder of kidnapped Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl deepen his resolve to fight the war against terrorism. "The United States of America will rid the world of these agents of terror," Bush said in Beijing, where he was concluding a trip to East Asia."This is a man who lives for three things," Paul Steiger, the Wall Street's managing editor, said recently. "He lives for covering stories accurately. He lives for his wife -- they have a wonderful relationship -- and he lives for his unborn child." Mariane Pearl is about seven months pregnant with their first child.
