Taliban reject rape, murder claims of freed Canadian hostage

Pakistan       by Haider Ali Sindhu | Published

Boyle, who was freed from the traps of the Haqqani network earlier this week, had accused the members of the terror group of raping his wife and killing his daughter soon after arriving in Canada.

He said his goal now is to build "a secure sanctuary for our three surviving children to call a home. and try to regain some portion of the childhood that they have lost".

"God-willing the healing process - physically and mentally can begin", Boyle said.

But Mr Boyle confirmed Najaeshi's two-year-old brother Dhakwoen Noah was finding it harder to adjust to his new home.

A Taliban spokesman has rejected as "false and propaganda" the allegations of rescued Canadian hostage Joshua Boyle that his child was murdered and his wife raped during his captivity in Afghanistan.

Coleman was pregnant at the time and the couple had four children in captivity.

Before marrying Coleman, Boyle was briefly married in 2009 to Zaynab Khadr, the sister of Canadian-born Omar Khadr, who was captured in battle as a teenager in Afghanistan in 2002 and held for a decade in the U.S. military at Guantanamo Bay.

Officials in Pakistan say a roadside bomb attack Sunday killed at least four soldiers and wounded several others near the Afghan border. "Three days ago they did not know what a light is or what a door is except that it is a metal thing that is locked in their face to make them a prisoner".

'And now they are seeing houses, they are seeing food, they are seeing gifts, all of this. "They are doing very well".

The couple and their children were rescued in a dramatic operation orchestrated by the USA and Pakistani governments, officials said Thursday.

He said their daughter had been examined by doctors Friday, and that hospital staff were "enthusiastically insistent that her chances seemed miraculously high based on a quick physical".

The Pakistani forces that freed the family said the United States intelligence services tipped them off that they had been moved into Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal areas from across the border in Afghanistan.

He told reporters: 'I was in Afghanistan helping the most neglected minority group in the world, those ordinary villagers who live deep inside Taliban-controlled Afghanistan where no NGO, no aid worker and no government has ever successfully been able to bring the necessary help.

He told a reporter on the plane that the '(US State Department's) interests are not my interests'.

A US military official said that a military hostage team had flown to Pakistan Wednesday prepared to fly the family out.

Meanwhile, Mr Boyle denied reports he had had refused to board a plane that was preparing to take the family home. Another U.S. official said Boyle was nervous about being in "custody" given his family ties. Her father, the late Ahmed Said Khadr, and the family stayed with Osama bin Laden briefly when Omar Khadr was a boy. Officials had discounted any link between that background and Boyle's capture, with one describing it in 2014 as a "horrible coincidence".
