A senior member of the Taliban claims South Korea has paid $20m to release 19 missionaries they were holding hostage.
And the insurgent group has now vowed to use the funds to buy arms and mount suicide attacks.
"We got more than $20m from them (the Seoul government)," a commander said.
"With it we will purchase arms, get our communication network renewed and buy vehicles for carrying out more suicide attacks."
