Canadian hostage Joshua Boyle says Taliban killed daughter

He of course is blameless… still hasn’t sheared off that Muslim style beard

A Canadian held hostage by the Taliban has spoken of the group’s “stupidity and evil”, revealing they murdered his daughter and raped his wife.

Joshua Boyle spoke to reporters after landing in Canada with his wife Caitlan Coleman and children following almost five years in captivity.

They were captured while reportedly backpacking in Afghanistan in 2012.

Ms Coleman’s father has said the decision to visit the dangerous country was “unconscionable”.
