Family held hostage in Afghanistan set to undergo medical exams in Canada

The Afghan Taliban has denied the allegations levelled by the freed Canadian captive that his wife was raped and one of their infant children was killed by the militants during their captivity.

Freed hostage Caitlan Coleman's father is questioning his Canadian son-in-law's decision to take his pregnant wife hiking in Afghanistan and, once released after five years in captivity, refusing to fly home on an American military plane.

He said the Haqqani leadership authorized the murder of his daughter in retaliation for his refusal to accept an offer from the kidnappers, but didn't elaborate on the offer.

After landing in Toronto on Friday Boyle accused his captors of killing his baby daughter and raping his wife - accusations which the Taliban said were "fake".

Boyle says that after the children were born, the Haqqani militants who captured them were mainly focused on ransoming Coleman.

"The stupidity and evil of the Haqqani network's kidnapping of a pilgrim and his heavily pregnant wife engaged in helping ordinary villagers in Taliban-controlled regions of Afghanistan was eclipsed only by the stupidity and evil of authorizing the murder of my infant daughter", Boyle said.

After returning to his parents" home in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Boyle emailed The Associated Press a statement saying they had "reached the first true "home' that the children have ever known — after they spent most of Friday asking if each subsequent airport was our new house hopefully".

The family was rescued Wednesday on a Pakistani-led raid based on USA intelligence. "And to try to regain of the childhood that they had lost".

A couple held hostage for five years by a Taliban-linked extremist network in Afghanistan was safely back in Canada on Saturday after what the husband described as a harrowing firefight during a raid to free the family.

He wrote: 'God has given me and my family unparalleled resilience and determination, and to allow that to stagnate, to pursue personal pleasure or comfort while there is still deliberate and organised injustice in the world would be a betrayal of all I believe, and tantamount to sacrilege'.

The couple told U.S. officials and their families they wanted to fly commercially to Canada.

Two US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, on Thursday told Reuters that the USA military had been ready to fly the family out of the country after they were freed but said Boyle, who is Canadian, had refused to board the aircraft.

The Star reported that Boyle said he sustained minor shrapnel wounds during the shootout.

But a Department of Justice spokesman told CNN that Boyle did not face arrest in the United States.
