Hostage relatives end visit

Relatives of Western tourists kidnapped by Kashmiri separatists nearly two years ago ended their four-day visit to Kashmir valley yesterday with little success in learning the hostages' fate. "We don't know the truth whether the hostages are alive or dead. That's the position of the government as well," Julie Mangan, whose husband, Keith Mangan, is among the missing men, told reporters.
