Pakistan’s army says Canadian man, family rescued from ‘terrorist custody’




Pakistan’s army said today that its troops have rescued a Canadian man, his American wife and their three children from “terrorist custody” following a tip from U.S. intelligence agencies.

The description of the rescued hostages matches that of Canadian Joshua Boyle and American Caitlan Coleman, captured in Afghanistan in 2012. Coleman was pregnant when they were kidnapped and is known to have had at least two children in captivity.

Acc. to an army statement, U.S. intelligence on Wednesday told Pakistan that the hostages had been moved over the border into northwestern Pakistan.
