Taliban shifted Western hostages as prisoner swap postponed

A plan to swap two Western hostages with three Taliban prisoners has been postponed, an Afghan government official said Friday. Reports said Taliban sources said the group had moved the Westerners to a ’new and safe place’. The Afghan government was scheduled to release a leader of the Taliban’s Haqqani militant faction and two other commanders in exchange for two university professors.
