Taliban in Fresh Threat to Korean Hostages' Lives

According to Digital Chosunilbo Taliban kidnappers have declared that negotiations with the Korean government for the release of 19 Koreans held in Afghanistan have collapsed. Some reports said the Taliban threatened to kill one or two more hostages unless Korea makes a genuine offer by Monday..........................
This hostage crisis drags on and on. The Taliban raise hopes and then dash them. The terrorists are guilty of the most horrific psychological torture. The world media with a few honourable exceptions has continued to ignore the crisis. Where is the public outcry? Once more it is time to pose the question: When will Saudi Arabia intervene? Other Arab Governments are silent. Why? When will the world media give this crisis the attention it deserves?
