The bullet-riddled body of Pakistani journalist Tariq Kamal, a Karachi-based reporter for a local Sindhi newspaper, was found last Wednesday (9 May). His body showed signs of severe torture. He had been kidnapped three days before along with his friend, Fawad Sheikh, who was also murdered. Kamal was on a visit to a dangerous area of Balochistan to work on an exclusive report. His family received a call from him in which he said he was about to be killed by his captors. The family were also informed by the kidnappers that the two men were being killed because they were police informants.
