VBScript to delete a list of files from sub directories

I need a VBScript to delete a list of paths and files from the current directory. The list of files is located on C:\files.txt. The current can be any directory. Every file in the list is in a sub directory of the current directory: File example:

copenhagen/hotels/images/8.jpg

Just curious... but can't you just throw those all in a batch file, get to the directory above copenhagen and off you go?

It just seems like overkill writing it into VbScript.
