Al Jazeera: Taliban proposes prisoner swap for hostages

September 9, 2011

The Pakistani Taliban, who are holding up to 30 boys hostage in an area straddling the border with Afghanistan, have demanded the release of scores of prisoners and an end to tribal elders’ support of offensives against them.

The teenage tribesmen from Pakistan’s northwestern Bajaur tribal region were abducted by Taliban last Friday, while picnicking in Afghanistan’s border province of Kunar on the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

    it is nauseabond.
    May, men, utilize childs as means for stop attacks against them?
    May a man be simply a man, if he use childs for his utility?
    the answer is: no.
    This is not a war, this is a kidnapping.
    It is a strumentalytation od indefense people.
    No words may describe such a jest.
