The Pakistan interior minister said today, that they will release another 13 Taliban prisoners as a "goodwill gesture" to help ongoing peace talks with militants.

The announcement came after the Pakistani Taliban yesterday, extended a ceasefire by 6 days, stating they were doing so to allow the government more time to meet their demands of releasing "non-combatant" prisoners and pulling back soldiers.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan urged the Islamists to reciprocate, calling for the release of a senior academic -- Professor Mohammad Ajmal -- as well the sons of slain former Punjab governor Salman Taseer and former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, and some foreigners and government employees.
