Hostages free af­ter five years

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

An Amer­i­can wo­man, her Cana­dian hus­band and their three young chil­dren have been re­leased af­ter years held cap­tive by a net­work with ties to the Tal­iban.

Pak­istan se­cured the re­lease of Cait­lan Cole­man and her hus­band Joshua Boyle, who were ab­ducted five years ago while trav­el­ling in Afghanistan and had been held by the Haqqani net­work in Pak­istan.

Ms Cole­man, from Penn­syl­va­nia, was preg­nant when she was cap­tured. The cou­ple had three chil­dren while in cap­tiv­ity, and all have been freed. A US na­tional se­cu­rity of­fi­cial com­mended Pak­istan for their crit­i­cal as­sis­tance in se­cur­ing their re­lease.
