South Korea to withdraw workers from Iraq

South Korea will evacuate all South Koreans working for businesses in Iraq by early next month, the government announced on Tuesday. The move affects the last 22 businessmen still in Iraq, most of them working for South Korean companies providing supplies to the U.S. military. Kim Sun-il, a 33-year-old translator was kidnapped near the town of Fallujah, west of Baghdad. The militants threatened to behead the South Korean if Seoul does not overturn its decision to send 3,000 troops to Iraq. The deadline passed with the government sticking to its deployment of 3,000 soldiers, with the first dispatch coming in August. There was no information on whether Kim was still alive by late Tuesday morning.
