Taliban free remaining South Korean hostages

Taliban militants released the final three of 21 South Koreans they had been holding on Thursday, bringing to an end a six-week hostage drama, witnesses said.

 

The two women and one man were covered in dust as they walked out of the desert, accompanied by three armed men, and were turned over to waiting officials of the International Committee of the Red Cross, an Associated Press reporter at the scene said. (AP)
