"I am deeply saddened to learn the loss of Daniel Pearl's life," Bush said in Beijing. "It is very sad for his wife and his parents and his friends and colleagues who have been praying and have been hopeful for weeks that he would be found alive.

"All Americans are sad and angry to learn of the murder ... all around the world, journalists, human aid workers, diplomats who do important work in places that sometimes are dangerous ...

"Those who hurt Americans, do barbaric acts, need to know that such acts only hurt their cause and deepens the desire of the United States of America to rid the world of these agents of terror."

The president made the statement on his way to address Chinese college students. Bush is on the final leg of his three-nation Asia tour.
