Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has said they have no demands in return for release of the eight Turkish citizens the Taliban took hostage in Logar province of Afghanistan.      

Mujahid told AA on Monday that they had no demands for release of the hostages and added they created a committee to identify the hostages.      

"After our investigation is over we will tell when we will release them," Mujahid noted.      

The hostages are currently in Afghanistan and they are in good health, Mujahid said, "we do not harm them."      

On April 22, a helicopter owned by Khorasan Cargo Airlines made an emergency landing due to bad weather in Azra town, some 30 km away from Pakistani border, controlled by Taliban, and the passengers aboard the helicopter were taken hostage by Taliban.
