Deal reached to end the long hostage ordeal


Family members of hostages celebrate at Saemmul Church in Bundang on Aug. 28 after Blue House Spokesman Cheon Ho-seon announced the Taliban had agreed to release all 19 remaining hostages. The Taliban also confirmed the agreement to release the South Korean church aid workers who they kidnapped on July 19. Among the original 23 hostages, the Taliban killed two male hostages and later released two female hostages.

청와대 천호선 대변인이 8월28일 탈레반이 피랍자 19명 전원을 석방키로 합의했다고 발표하자 피랍자 가족들이 분당 샘물교회에서 기뻐하고 있다. 탈레반도 자신들이 7월19일에 납치했던 한국인 교회 자원봉사자들을 석방하기로 한 합의를 확인했다. 피랍자 23명 가운데 탈레반은 남성 2명을 살해했고 나중에 여성 2명을 석방했었다.
