American University of Afghanistan

Press release on the Taliban video of Kevin King and Tim Weeks our two kidnapped professors

"All of us at the American University of Afghanistan students, staff, trustees and fellow faculty are saddened and pained by what we have seen in the video the Taliban released using our colleagues, Tim and Kevin. We call on the Taliban to release immediately and safely Kevin and Tim and all other hostages. Kevin and Tim came to Afghanistan as teachers, to help Afghanistan. These innocent people have done nothing to harm anyone and need to be reunited with their family, friends and colleagues.

Kevin and Tim, when you hear these words, know that we are with you, we support you, we care about you, and we want you home now. We hold you as part of our American University of Afghanistan family and as part of our family, we will work ceaselessly to do anything and everything in our power to help bring you home. We will not give up; we will not stop pressing all involved to do all they can. Our thoughts and prayers are with you constantly. We will not rest until you are back safely with us."
