South Korean Hostages
The Washington Post is reporting more hostages have been released. It seems as if the taliban has forced South Korea to consessions: "South Korea appeared to give up little of substance in its negotiations. The government had already said it would be withdrawing its troops and has long sought to prevent missionaries from working in countries where they are unwanted.
The Taliban had alleged that the abducted Koreans were missionaries, but the Korean government and relatives of the hostages had insisted they were in Afghanistan doing aid work." This is a more detailed report. Overall this is what happens when good and decent efforts to provide the most basic of Human needs clash with ignorant and barbaric mentalities far beyond perverted to be considered either political or relgious.
