BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Militants threatening to behead a South Korean hostage in Iraq unless Seoul withdraws its troops have agreed to allow more time for talks on his fate, an Iraqi mediator told Reuters on Tuesday.
"The kidnappers have said they are willing to negotiate as long as the Korean government stops making provocative remarks and softens its tone on troop deployment," Obeidi said.
