The South Korean hostagesTopics: Islam And The War On Terror, War on Terror
I have gone through the news about the release of the 20 South Korean hostages who had been kidnapped by Talibans in Afghanistan. It's said that the South Korean Government has paid around $20 million that -a Taliban speaker has announced- will be used for buying more weapons and to carry suicide attacks.
They have also expressed their satisfaction about the way the kidnapping has resulted and announced they will carry more of them in the future against citizens who are nationals of countries which have troops in the country.
There are also reports that say that the women were sexualy assaulted by the Talibans and that all hostages were beaten when they rejected to convert to Islam.

My pastor (I live in South Korea so he associates with a lot of South Korean pastors) says that the church that sent them really screwed up, didn't send any kind of security, didn't contact the Afghan authorities of their intentions so that they could be properly advised, or anything. They were wise as doves and innocent as sperpents, he says.
