Pakistan mourns slain journalist

Hundreds attend funeral of Saleem Shahzad, whose body was found near Islamabad.

    Hundreds of mourners gathered in the Pakistani city of Karachi for the funeral of slain Saleem Shahzad - a journalist who investigated al-Qaeda's alleged infiltration of the country's navy.

    On Tuesday, Shahzad's body was found with marks of torture in a canal near the capital Islamabad after disappearing for two days.

    Syed Saleem Shahzad had earlier told a rights activist he had been threatened by the country's intelligence agencies.
