South Korea Denies Hostage Payments
South Korea has denied rumors it paid a multi-million dollar ransom for the release of 19 hostages in Afghanistan. A presidential spokesman rejected claims by some Afghan officials that a secret financial deal had been reached. Seoul has said it agreed to pull its troops from Afghanistan by the end of the year, and stop any more Christian missionaries travelling to Afghanistan.
