Korean Team and Ora Staff in Afghanistan

Just found an update on the Korean ministry team that was kidnapped over a month ago in Afghanistan. As of this writing, Google can only find two recent articles on this topic. An Indian newspaper had the following report:

Negotiations to secure the release of 19 Korean church volunteers being held in Afghanistan by the Taliban have failed and the insurgents’ leadership council are now considering their fate, a Taliban spokesman said on Saturday.

VOA is reporting that a female volunteer for the Christian relief organization Ora International was kidnapped today in Afghanistan.
