Two hostages, an American and an Australian citizen, have been released by the Taliban after three years of captivity. In exchange, three Taliban prisoners were let go. They are members of the Haqqani network, a wing of the Taliban known for plotting violent attacks against civilians. Host Marco Werman speaks to journalist Hameed Shuja of the BBC Pashto Service.
