Kabul : The Taliban has killed one more South Korean hostage held in Afghanistan Monday night, a purported Taliban spokesman Yousuf Ahmadi told Xinhua from an undisclosed place.
Ahmadi said the male hostage named Song Kin-Shi was shot dead at around 8.30 p.m. (1600 GMT) as the Afghan government was not serious in the talks.
He said the body was dumped near the Ghazni-Kandahar highway.
Taliban has insisted on the exchange of their prisoners for the hostages.
A total of 23 South Koreans were kidnapped by Taliban militants on a road in the central Ghazni province on July 19. One male hostage was executed by Taliban on July 25.
