Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism

The following distinguished group of journalists have received the Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism.

The world has come to know Daniel Pearl as the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists in Pakistan in early 2002, just four months after 9/11. People around the world, along with his pregnant wife and family, prayed for his release.

Since then, he has been remembered as a symbol of hope: a man who built bridges between diverse cultures undefined as a writer and a gifted musician.
