American woman and her family rescued from Taliban after five years

Caitlin Coleman, her Canadian husband, Josh Boyle, and their children were freed after the couple was kidnapped and held captive by a Taliban-linked group in 2012. Pakistani military forces rescued the family after the U.S. received intelligence that they had crossed into Pakistan from Afghanistan. In a statement, President Trump said the release of the Boyle-Coleman family was a “positive moment” in U.S.-Pakistan relations.
