Canadian Joshua Boyle and American Caitlan Coleman were kidnapped in Afghanistan in 2012 by a group associated with the Taliban.
The couple and their three children have been released.
Coleman was pregnant when they were captured.
They had two boys and one girl while they were in captivity.
No word on their current location, nor when they planned to return to North America.
They’d been living in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick.
The government of Pakistan had secured their release.
U.S. President Donald Trump says Washington had worked with Pakistan.
”The Pakistani government’s co-operation is a sign that it is honouring America’s wishes for it to do more to provide security in the region.”
