Pakistani Forces Free American Hostage and Her Family

Pakistani army forces said Thursday they had secured the release of an American-Canadian couple and their three children long held by militants, an operation carried out with the aid of U.S. intelligence and hailed by President Donald Trump as a sign of improving relations between wary allies.

Caitlan Coleman, an American, her husband Joshua Boyle, a Canadian, and their children, were freed when a vehicle carrying them and their captors crossed from Afghanistan into Pakistan on Wednesday, Pakistani officials said.
