Afghanistan's Taliban militia said it shot dead a South Korean hostage late Monday after its deadlines expired for the government to free prisoners in jail.

"We set several deadlines and the Afghan government did not pay attention to our deadlines," spokesman Yousuf Ahmadi told AFP. "Finally tonight at 8.30 we killed one of the Koreans named Sung Sin with AK-47 gunshots."
