HYDERABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Prosecutors dropped a request Wednesday to have the widow of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl testify against four men charged in his murder, saying they will conclude their case this week.
Chief prosecutor Raja Quereshi said he decided not to pursue Mariane Pearl's testimony after her attorney filed a statement in court saying she would be unable to travel to London or Pakistan for medical reasons.
Mrs. Pearl, 38, gave birth to her first child, Adam, a week ago in Paris.
