Pakistan's army says Canadian man, family rescued from 'terrorist custody'
Three Pakistani military officials, all speaking on condition of anonymity as they weren't allowed to speak to journalists, also confirmed the hostages' identities. The hostages were rescued "through an intelligence-based operation by Pakistani troops and the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence)".
Coleman, 31, was pregnant at the time of abduction.
A Pakistan military statement said that based on "actionable intelligence from USA", the rescue operation was conducted in the Kurram tribal region near the Afghan border on Wednesday.
The last known footage of the couple surfaced in December previous year when they appeared in video urging their governments to secure their release.
"US intelligence agencies had been tracking them and shared their shifting across to Pakistan on Oct 11, 2017, through the Kurram Agency border".
In the initial hours after their release, the family was still in Pakistan as arrangements were being made to return them to either the United States or Canada.
The couple went missing in Afghanistan in 2012 and the Afghan Taliban later claimed responsibility for abducting them. "The world is starting to respect us again, believe me", Trump said appearing to reference Pakistan and that country's role in bringing about the the recovery of the four hostages. The group released two videos of the hostages.
