Taliban hostages ask Trump to offer prisoner exchange for their release

The Taliban has released a video showing an American and an Australian who were kidnapped in August.

It is the first time teachers Kevin King and Timothy Weekes have been seen, since they were abducted in the Afghan capital Kabul last summer.

In the video, they appeal to US President-elect Donald Trump to offer a prisoner exchange for their release.
