NEW YORK – The widow of Daniel Pearl has sued more than a dozen reputed terrorists and Pakistan’s largest bank, blaming them for the torture and murder of the Wall Street Journal reporter in 2002. A complaint filed Wednesday in Brooklyn federal court by Mariane Pearl and her husband’s estate alleges Habib Bank Limited of Karachi knowingly provided financial services for al-Qaida and other terrorist groups. Backed by the bank, terrorists “carried out the kidnapping, ransom, torture, execution and dismemberment of Daniel Pearl and broadcast those images nationwide,” the lawsuit said. The suit seeks unspecified damages for acts it alleges were meant to “emotionally destroy the Pearl family and terrorize, appall and frighten American citizens.” Also named as a defendant in the suit is Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the imprisoned al-Qaida No. 3 leader and mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, along with an outlawed Islamic charity, the al-Rashid Trust. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Pakistan banned the charity earlier this year as part of an effort to dry up terrorist financing. Mariane Pearl, a French citizen, said in a statement that she hoped the suit would compel the defendants to provide more answers about her husband’s death.

1 DISCLAIMER: Like Stan Kroenke’s ambitions for Arsenal, this is just a joke.With clubs under pressure to complete transfer business on deadline day, the Premier League allows them to submit a ‘deal sheet’ before the window closes.This allows for deals that have been agreed to have official documentation completed after the deadline has passed.But what does an official deal sheet actually look like?Not the one above, that’s for sure!
