"[Syed Saleem Shahzad] was reported missing in the capital, Islamabad, on Sunday. On Tuesday police said family members identified a body pulled from a canal almost 100 miles away as that of the 40-year-old journalist. They said his body bore signs of torture. He disappeared two days after writing an investigative report in Asia Times Online describing how al-Qaeda carried out last week's attack on a naval airbase in Karachi." (05/31/11)
