The Beatles hit No. 1 for the first time in America, tragedy strikes space shuttle Columbia, and Janet Jackson suffers a Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction," all on this day.
2002: Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who had been kidnapped on Jan. 23 in Karachi, Pakistan, is beheaded and mutilated by his captors. On May 16, Pearl's severed head and decomposed body were found cut into 10 pieces and buried in a shallow grave at Gadap, about 30 miles north of Karachi. In March 2007, at a closed military hearing in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said that he had personally beheaded Pearl.
