Nineteen South Korean church workers have arrived home after being held captive by the Taleban in Afghanistan for six weeks.
They were joined by relatives of two hostages killed by their Taleban captors in July.
Former hostage Yu Kyeong-sik apologised to the nation for causing trouble by going to Afghanistan against government advice.
The hostages expressed their remorse with a collective bow.
They looked pale and tired as they were driven away from the airport.
