23 South Koreans (18 women, five men) were abducted by the Taliban in Afghanistan on 20th July. The group includes doctors and nurses who went to Afghanistan to provide their medical services for humanitarian purposes.
Filled with passion and idealism, these people were trying to make a difference. However, things turned out otherwise. One of the hostages had been killed. They are demanding that eight of their jailed fighters be released, or the remaining hostages will be killed.
The fate of these hostages is a huge uncertainty. I hope you can join the millions of Koreans and people around the world in praying for the safety of this group of people.
