Westerners Detained for Trial in Afghanistan

I saw this quote:

“Two Americans, two Australians and six Germans are being held in detention in Kabul, charged with spreading Christianity. If found guilty they could face the death penalty.”



How will this affect a possible strike against the Afghani regime? Do we simply demand their safe return? This might be a good time for the Taleban to display some high-profile altruism, no?
