leave a comment »

KANDAHAR, July 24, 2007 — A purported Taliban spokesman, Yousuf Ahmadi, told the French AFP news agency today that a German hostage who has been held for nearly a week is very sick and is in and out of consciousness.

It is impossible to verify the claim independently. Two German aid workers were kidnapped on Wednesday (July 18). On Sunday (July 22) the body of one of them was recovered. The cause of his death is not yet clear. The Taliban demanded the release of 10 of their jailed comrades and the withdrawal of German troops from Afghanistan.
