Rescued Canadian-American family leaves Pakistan

Pak Army performed well in recovering the couple Mattis

The father of Caitlan Coleman, the American woman who was imprisoned by a Taliban-affiliated group for five years, lashed out in a Friday interview at her husband, Joshua Boyle, for bringing her to Afghanistan while she was pregnant.

"No one has ever killed a child of this couple, and nobody has ever raped or defiled".

A Canadian man who was freed along with his family after five years in militant captivity in Afghanistan said his captors authorized the killing of one of his children and raped his wife.

Speaking about the couple's children, Boyle said, "Obviously it would be of incredible importance to my family that we are able to build a secure sanctuary for our 3 surviving children to call a home, to focus on edification", Boyle told reporters.

Joshua Boyle, his American wife, Caitlan Coleman and their three children were freed on Thursday in a joint operation carried out by Pakistani forces based on intelligence from United States authorities.

"Taking your pregnant wife to a very unsafe place, to me, and the kind of person I am, it's unconscionable", Jim Coleman told ABC News' "Good Morning America".

The troops were part of a search party deployed in the Kurram tribal district to hunt down the handlers of a kidnapped American-Canadian family Pakistani forces rescued from captivity last week on a tip from USA intelligence, the army said.

The Haqqani network, a group that operates in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, is headed by Sirajuddin Haqqani, who is also the Afghan Taliban's deputy leader.

Removed in October 2012, the family was detained by the terrorist network Haqqani, linked to the taliban and close to the military intelligence of pakistan.

On the plane from London, Boyle provided a written statement to The Associated Press saying his family has "unparalleled resilience and determination".

"These are children who three days ago they did know what a toilet looks like".

His family said some of his captors were killed and Mr Boyle suffered a shrapnel wound.

"Taking your pregnant wife to a very unsafe place to me and the kind of person that I am is unconscionable", Jim Coleman, father of Caitlan Coleman said.

Mr Boyle is reported to have told his parents that the operation to free the family involved a shootout and ended with a threat from one of their captors to "kill the hostage".

He was once married to Zaynab Khadr, the older sister of former Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr and the daughter of a senior al-Qaida financier. Officials had discounted any link between that background and Boyle's capture, with one describing it in 2014 as a "horrible coincidence".

His captors' actions were in retaliation for his "repeated refusal to accept an offer" from them, he said, without providing details on what the offer was.

"Coleman and Boyle are not charged with any federal crime and, as such, we do not seek their arrest", spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle said.
