(Toronto) — The family that were held hostage by the Taliban are in Canada after being freed. Joshua Boyle made a brief statement to the press after arriving at the Toronto airport Friday night. He denied reports that he refused a flight to the U.S. for fear of being arrested because of his previous connections to a suspected terrorist. The Canadian man said he and his American wife were in Afghanistan helping villagers in the country when they were kidnapped by the Taliban in 2012. He said Taliban members killed one of his children and raped his wife. Caitlyn Coleman was pregnant when the couple was captured. The couple, along with three children, were rescued by the Pakistani military this week.
