LOS ANGELES (AP) - Students of Daniel Pearl Magnet High School in Los Angeles have helped create a 65-foot-long mural to honor the slain Wall Street Journal reporter for whom their school is named.

The Los Angeles Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1Rk2UcB) four students who proposed designs for the mural were selected to work on the project in an event sponsored by a neighborhood council.

The students worked with Los Angeles police West Valley cadets and other community members.

Pearl, who was raised in Encino, was killed in 2002 after being abducted by militants in Pakistan.

One of the students who participated in the painting, Sheena Gonzalez, says Pearl has inspired her to speak her mind.
