Trump confirms hostage family's release from Taliban

US President Donald Trump has confirmed that American Caitlan Coleman, her Canadian husband Joshua Boyle and their three children have been rescued from Taliban captivity in Afghanistan.

They were found by the Pakistani military during an operation near the Afghan border after a tip-off by US intelligence.

The couple were kidnapped while backpacking in Afghanistan in 2012.
