Afghan police killed three Taliban commanders allegedly involved in the abduction of 23 South Koreans two-months ago, the Interior Ministry said. The Interior Ministry said the police operation took place Friday in the Qarabagh district of Ghazni province, where the insurgents seized the 23 South Koreans on July 19. "The commanders who were killed during this operation were directly involved in the kidnapping case of the Korean hostages," the ministry said in a statement Saturday. It did not provide any further details or the identities of the slain Taliban members. There have been several military operations in Ghazni since the release of the last captives on August 30, possibly reflecting a desire by the Afghan government to assert its authority over the rebellious region following the abductions.
