South Korea's government says the remains of a South Korean hostage have been found, after he was beheaded Tuesday by an Iraqi militant group with ties to al Qaeda. The kidnappers killed Kim Sun-il, a 33-year-old contractor, after South Korea rejected the group's demands that it cancel plans to deploy troops to Iraq. Hear NPR's Emily Harris.
