Daniel Pearl's widow meets Musharraf
The widow of the American journalist, Daniel Pearl, who was killed by Islamic militants in Pakistan, has met President Parvez Musharraf.

State television said Mariane Pearl had thanked the president for his efforts to prevent the killing.

He replied that he regarded the crime as a most barbaric act of terrorism.

Diplomatic sources say Mrs Pearl, who is expecting her first child in April, is now on her way back to the United States.

Her husband's body has not yet been found.

On Wednesday, the US offered a five-million dollar reward for information about the killers, who videotaped the murder.
