The 19 hostages that have been held captive in Afghanistan since mid-July will be released.
A Taliban spokesman confirms that a deal has been reached free to the South Koreans. The South Korean government says the hostage release comes on the condition that the country withdraws its troops from Afghanistan by year end as previously planned and stops missionary work.
