Coleman, her husband, Joshua Boyle, and the three children she bore in five years in captivity were rescued Wednesday when Pakistani forces, alerted by US intelligence, ambushed a convoy of Islamic extremists transporting the hostages near the Afghan border.

"The charges of the inmate canadian against the mujahideen of the islamic Emirate are without foundation", announced the taliban in a statement from their spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, posted on their website.

He added that he doesn't understand why Boyle refused to board an American plane following the family's rescue by Pakistani soldiers.

He said the group never raped Boyle's wife, Caitlan Coleman, and never even parted the pair from each other in the past five years that they were in captivity.

Joshua Boyle spoke to reporters after the family returned to Canada.

He described the first as "remarkably barbaric", the second as more comfortable and the third as a place of violence in which he and his wife were frequently separated and beaten.

Speaking about the couple's children, Boyle said, "Obviously it would be of incredible importance to my family that we are able to build a secure sanctuary for our 3 surviving children to call a home, to focus on edification", Boyle told reporters. She was released Wednesday by the pakistani army on the faith of u.s. intelligence, reported the pakistan armed forces.

Meanwhile Coleman's father criticized his son in-law for having taken his heavily pregnant wife to Afghanistan in 2012.

"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 organized injustice in the world would be a betrayal of all I believe, and tantamount to sacrilege", he wrote.

"Even the murder of a child is unfounded", he continues, explaining that "the woman fell ill, and because of his serious state of health, had a miscarriage (lost) a girl".

A US national security official, who was not authorized to discuss operational details of the release and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the USA obtained actionable information, passed it to Pakistani officials, asked them to interdict and recover the hostages — and they did. Boyle told his parents that he, his wife and their children were intercepted by Pakistani forces while being transported in the back or trunk of their captors' auto and that some of his captors were killed.

"He wants to be home", the father told CNN from his home in Canada.

Boyle was previously married to the sister of Omar Khadr, a Canadian imprisoned for 10 years at the USA detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, after fighting U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
