Boyle and his American wife Caitlan Coleman were seized by the Taliban while hiking in Afghanistan in 2012, and then turned over to the group's affiliated militant Haqqani network in Pakistan.

He added, revealing the rape of his wife, "As retaliation of the repeated refusal to accept an offer that the criminal miscreants of the Haqqani had made to me".

However, the Taliban issued a statement on Sunday rejecting the claims and said at no time had the couple been separated from each other, nor had the baby been killed.

The Government of Canada issued the following statement on the arrival of Joshua Boyle, his wife Caitlan Coleman and their children at Toronto's Pearson International Airport: "Today, we join the Boyle family in rejoicing over the long-awaited return to Canada of their loved ones".

In a video released by Pakistan's military that was filmed before he left that country for home, Boyle said Pakistani security forces positioned themselves between the hostages and their Haqqani network captors to keep the family safe amid the gunfire. "To try to regain some portion of the childhood that they have lost".

"I don't know what five years in captivity would do to somebody, but if it were me and I saw a U.S. aircraft and USA soldiers, I'd be running for it", Coleman said.

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'.

Washington considers the Haqqani group a terrorist organization and has targeted its leaders with drone strikes. Coleman was pregnant at the time.
