    So what else is new?

    A dusty hole many generations away from civilization.

    "Yes, yes, we have been told to leave Afghanistan because of security concerns," Han told Reuters.

    He said the Koreans in the capital have been confined to their guesthouses while those outside the capital Kabul have begun returning to prepare to leave the country.

    Other sources in the capital aware of the issue confirmed the government had ordered the group to leave.


    Hundreds of Islamic clerics rallied in an ancient mosque in a northern city on Wednesday to demand the Koreans' expulsion after accusing them of trying to spread Christianity.

    Dozens of Afghan Muslims have converted to Christianity in recent years and live underground, according to locals.

    In February, thousands demonstrated against the release of a man facing the death penalty for converting to Christianity from Islam.

    The man, Abdur Rahman, was released from prison and then spirited to Italy after international outrage and calls by Western leaders and Pope Benedict.
