KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan Taliban rebels killed the second of two German hostages on Saturday after the end of their deadline for Germany to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan and the Afghan government to free all Taliban prisoners.

"The mujahideen also shot dead the second German hostage," Taliban spokesman Qari Mohammad Yousuf told Reuters by telephone from an unknown location.
