Taliban extend Korea hostage deadline by 24 hours

Taliban in Afghanistan holding 23 Korean Christian aid workers hostage are demanding that Taliban prisoners be released in exchange for them. Taliban also held two German hostages, demanding that German troops leave the country, and one of them was found dead on Sunday. That discovery made saving the Korean hostages seem even more urgent.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel angrily rejected the idea of Germany being blackmailed by the Taliban into leaving Afghanistan. She pledged to work to free the remaining German hostage.

Who in the world comes up with ideas like sending a busload of Protestant Christian mostly female missionaries into Taliban country? Moreover, the NY Times published a travelogue on delightful downtown Kabul.
