Syed Saleem Shahzad (November 3, 1970 â€“ 30 May 2011) was a Pakistani investigative journalist who wrote widely for leading European and Asian media. He served as the Pakistan Bureau Chief of Asia Times Online (Hong Kong) and Italian news agency Adnkronos (AKI) and often contributed to The Real News Network. He was found dead in a canal in North-east Pakistan, showing signs of torture, two days after he was kidnapped. Human Rights Watch (HRW) accused the Pakistan intelligence services of being behind his killing, and US government officials later announced that they had â€œreliable and conclusiveâ€ intelligence that this was the case. Pakistanâ€™s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) denied the accusations.
