American Woman And Her Family Released From Captivity In Afghanistan

American Woman And Her Family Released From Captivity In Afghanistan

The Pakistani military on Thursday announced the release of a US-Canadian couple and their three children from the Taliban's Haqqani faction in Pakistan.

Caitlin Coleman and her Canadian husband, Joshua Boyle, were captured by the Haqqani network while hiking in Afghanistan in late 2012.

The United States believed the hostages were probably held by the Haqqani group in or near its headquarters in northwest Pakistan the entire time, two other USA officials said.

"I would also like to say to my father specifically, that I think you would like to know that my time in-married, and my time as a mother, and my time in prison that I've become more of a Belle than an Ariel", Caitlan Coleman, known as "Caity" to her parents, explains.

Trump's statement said the couple's three children were born while they were held captive.

Tariq Azim Khan said Thursday that Canadian Joshua Boyle and his family were then flown by helicopter to the US embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan where they remain. But sometime after daybreak there, as the family members were walking to the plane, Boyle said he did not want to board.

Washington "is hopeful that Pakistan's actions will further a U.S. -Pakistan relationship marked by growing commitments to counterterrorism operations and stronger ties in all other respects", he said.

A USA national security official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing operation, commended Pakistan for their assistance.

The Foreign Secretary underlined the challenges faced by Afghanistan including deteriorating security situation marked by increasing ungoverned spaces being used to provide sanctuary to the terrorist groups.

The Toronto Star reported that Boyle spoke to his parents after his release.

The Pakistani statement said the family had been held in Afghanistan but that "U.S. intelligence agencies has been tracking them" and shared that they had crossed the border on Wednesday. And this was in December 2012 or so, roughly, around about this time of the year when they were picked up while they were backpacking.

Some officials said Pakistanis' motive for freeing the hostages may have been political rather than humanitarian, meant to reduce the tensions ahead of upcoming visits by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

"The Coleman family appreciates all the interest and concern being expressed at the joyful news that Caity, Josh and our grandchildren have been released after five long years of captivity". It seems that the - the Pakistani military has - has focused on the fact that this has been a joint-intelligence based operation where they acted on what they call actionable intelligence that was provided by the USA intelligence agencies.

She said the key in most such cases, however, is to allow children to process their reactions in an environment that lets them come to terms with their new norm.
