Two South Koreans released by the Taliban last week have spoken of their time in captivity in Afghanistan.

The women are now recovering at a military hospital in Seoul saying that despite their new found safety, they still feel scarred.

Kim Ji-na, released hostage, said, "You may think of us as happy now that we are with our families again. But we can't sleep at night, worrying about the hostages that were left behind. I understand that Islam teaches respect for life and love of family. I hope very much for the return of my friends so that they too can be reunited with their families."
