But that's not easy for an agency that is already more than a million dollars over budget. And as Justin McLeod discovered the money problem may get worse before it gets better.

But according to Newsweek magazine this isn't the first time Saeed has faced charges. Saeed apparently was secretly indicted by a federal grand jury in Washington just last november for the attempted 1994 kidnapping of four tourists in India including one American. Reportedly, in January U-S officials were pushing for the extradition of the Islamic militant... but it didn't happen. Two weeks later Pearl was kidnapped. So will Saeed be extradited?
