Taliban video of Kevin King and Tim Weeks, two AUAF kidnapped professors
22, June, 2017
The AUAF community including students, staff, trustees and faculty are disheartened by the recent video of our colleagues Kevin and Tim released by the Taliban. Kevin and Tim were abducted by the Taliban in 2016 and have been kept in captivity for nearly a year. Kevin and Tim came to Afghanistan to teach Afghan youth and to contribute to building a brighter future for the country.
We call on the Taliban for the immediate release of Kevin and Tim. They need to be freed and returned to their families, friends and loved ones.
Kevin and Tim continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. We want them to know that we will be with them as their AUAF family. We will continue to strongly urge all involved to do anything and everything they can for the immediate and safe release of Kevin and Tim.
