Two South Korean hostages freed from Taliban captivity arrived home Friday, amid an ongoing standoff where 19 of their compatriots remain held by the insurgent group in Afghanistan. The two women - Kim Gina, 32 and Kim Kyung-ja, 37 - were released earlier this week and had been undergoing medical care in Afghanistan before heading home. "I want to thank the Korean government and the Korean people for their concerns and sincerely apologize for causing such worries," Kim Kyung-ja said. "I hope for safe release for the rest of our team members as well." "All I wish for is the release of the rest of our team members," said Kim Gina.
