Taliban shoot hostage

CNN reported Taliban kidnappers shot dead a male South Korean hostage on Monday, a spokesman said, accusing the Afghan government of not listening to rebel demands.
If they free prisoners just because you demand it, it just makes it more likely you will take more hostages.
.... "We shot dead a male captive
He, and all of the other hostages were "People of the Book"
because the government did not listen to our demands," spokesman Qari Mohammad Yousuf told Reuters by telephone.

He said the Taliban would kill more hostages if Kabul ignored their demand to release rebel prisoners, but gave no new deadline.
