In Memory, Daniel Pearl

A ceremony was held Sunday in Miami Beach, Fla., to add the name of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl to the 30,000 etched on the Holocaust Memorial Wall. Although Pearl was killed by Islamic militants after being abducted in Pakistan in 2002, his father, Judea Pearl, said there was a thread of hatred tying his son's death to those of Holocaust victims. Three of Pearl's captors are serving life sentences; a fourth was sentenced to death.
