A top South Korean envoy was heading to Afghanistan on Thursday while condemning the killing of one of his country's citizens by Taliban kidnappers there and scrambling to save the lives of 22 remaining hostages. The victim was found Wednesday with 10 bullet holes in his head, chest and stomach in the Mushaki area of Qarabagh district in Ghazni province, the region where the 23 South Korean Christian volunteers were seized July 19 while riding a bus, said Abdul Rahman, a police officer. Because of a recent spike in kidnappings - including an attempt against a Danish citizen Wednesday - Afghan police announced that foreigners were no longer allowed to leave the Afghan capital without their permission.
