Taliban Agrees to Free Korean Hostages

by Dr. D ~ August 28th, 2007

The Taliban has agreed to free the remaining 19 hostages soon. The South Korean government negotiated an agreement with the radical Islamic group to end the crisis. The Koreans for their part agreed to pull all of their troops (they were support non-combatants) out of Afghanistan by the end of the year (which they had already planned to do) and to stop all missionary work by their people in that country.

Comments: It will be interesting to see how long it will take the Taliban to follow through with their agreement and actually release all the hostages. Personally I hate to see terrorists get anything in return for kidnapping people. It will only encourage more such action from the Taliban. However, it sure will be nice to see these young people from Korea finally free. Especially since their only sin was trying to help people and happening to be Christian in the process.

Recently, it has been revealed that Afghani forces had been ready to attack the kidnappers and attempt a rescue but the South Korean government stepped in and nixed the plans with concerns about the lives of the hostages in the process.             *Top
