Pakistan Rescues Western Couple Held by Afghan Taliban

Pakistan Rescues Western Couple Held by Afghan Taliban”

Pakistan's army has recovered five Western hostages held by the Taliban for years.

The Pakistani Army said it had "recovered five Western hostages including one Canadian, his USA national wife and their three children from terrorist custody through an intelligence-based operation by Pakistan troops and intelligence agencies".

They last were seen in a hostage video taken in December 2016 begging their governments to save them. He also told his father that they've had a third baby in custody, a little girl who was born two months ago.

The couple had their three children while being held by the Haqqani network.

The family was kidnapped in Afghanistan in 2012.

The couple were kidnapped in Afghanistan in 2012, and US intelligence on Wednesday told Pakistan that the hostages had been moved over the border into northwestern Pakistan, according to an army statement.

Afghanistan is rife with militants and organised criminal gangs who stage kidnappings for ransom, often targeting foreigners and wealthy Afghans, who have been ferried over the border into Pakistan's tribal belt.
