Taliban Claims to Kill 2 German Hostages

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A very sad day. RIP fellas.

    in terms of dealing with the situation.

    1. we cannot give in to the hostage takers demands (like the italians).
    2. we know they will be killed.

    therefore, a rescue must be attempted, or at the very least, the camp must be TOTALLY anihilated. All the hostage takers must be killed. That is the only way I can see to reduce this problem.

    Ski.
     
  2. There is a mystery to this because the Afghan government spokesman has contradicted the Taleban and said that one of the Germans had a heart attack and died and the other is still alive, it was on tv an hour agao so I have no link at the moment. I hope it is not false hope for at least one of the families...
     
  3. Sorry, found it here:

    Foreign ministry spokesman Sultan Ahmad Baheen believes that at least one of the men is alive and that the other has died of a heart attack. I hope he is right, for at least one of the families.
