Taliban: South Korean hostage dead -

Taliban: South Korean hostage dead -
"GHAZNI, Afghanistan (Reuters) -- Afghanistan's Taliban killed one of the 23 South Korean hostages on Wednesday after Kabul failed to free Taliban prisoners, a spokesman for the group said, adding insurgents would kill more if their demands were not met.

'Since Kabul's administration did not listen to our demand and did not free our prisoners, the Taliban shot dead a male Korean hostage,' Qari Mohammad Yousuf told Reuters by phone from an unknown location. CNN was unable to confirm the report."
I hope that this is a bluff.

We all need to pray for the Korean Presbyterian humanitarian workers and that this crisis can be ended without loss of life.
