South Korean Christian groups have said they will end missionary work in Afghanistan following news of an apparent end to a 41-day hostage crisis that has gripped the country.

The Taliban were expected to begin freeing 19 South Korean Christian volunteers on Wednesday, under an agreement reached a day earlier in face-to-face talks with the South Korean government brokered by the Red Crescent.

Under the terms of the deal, South Korea agreed to end missionary activities by Christian groups in Afghanistan.
