Police received a videotape showing US journalist Daniel Pearl's murder by his kidnappers, a government spokesman in Karachi said on Friday.
"On February 21 around 11:00 pm (1800 GMT) a videotape was received. The recorded video contained scenes showing Mr Daniel Pearl in captivity and scenes of his murder by the kidnappers. The tape appears to be correct," the spokesman said.
One senior investigator said British-born Islamic militant Sheikh Omar, held in connection with the kidnapping, "would now face a murder case."
