KABUL (Reuters) – The Afghan Taliban will soon free the last four of eight Turkish civilians detained last month, the militants said on Monday, in what they called a gesture of goodwill toward fellow Muslims.
Turkey said on Sunday that four Turks had been released and handed to its intelligence agency. The eight were taken captive by the Taliban in the eastern province of Logar when their helicopter was forced to make a “hard landing”.
