    there is video at the link. also, i cannot seem to get the pictures to copy over from there at all, but go look at them and read the captions under them. they are many of the same pictures that have been used before, but the descriptions are very different than they have been in the past. it gives more insight into the situation than was initially offered.

    Ex-hostage, Joshua Boyle, who was recently freed from captivity in Afghanistan with his wife and children, has been arrested on 15 charges, including sexual assault.
    Boyle, of Canada, his American wife Caitlan, and their three children were rescued last October in Pakistan, five years after the couple was abducted by a Taliban-linked militant group while on a backpacking trip in neighboring Afghanistan.
    The children - 2- and 4-year-old boys and an infant daughter - were all born in captivity.



    Authorities said the charges against the 34-year-old include eight counts of assault, two accounts of sexual assault and two counts of unlawful confinement.
    Boyle was reportedly charged with one count of causing someone to 'take a noxious thing, namely Trazodone,' an antidepressant, court documents indicated Tuesday.
    There is also a charge of uttering a death threat and a charge of misleading a police officer.



    The purported acts allegedly occurred between October 14 - the day after the family returned to Canada - and December 30.
    A publication ban bars reporting any information that could identify the alleged victims, of which there are two.



    In a statement to the Toronto Star, Boyle's wife (left) wrote: 'I can't speak about the specific charges, but I can say that ultimately it is the strain and trauma he was forced to endure for so many years and the effects that that had on his mental state that is most culpable for this'



    Ottawa police declined comment. Eric Granger, Boyle's attorney, said he had not seen the court documents yet.


    'Mr Boyle is presumed innocent. He's never been in trouble before. No evidence has been provided yet, which is typical at this early stage. We look forward to receiving the evidence and defending him against these charges,' Granger said in an email.
    In a statement to the Toronto Star, Boyle's wife wrote: 'I can't speak about the specific charges, but I can say that ultimately it is the strain and trauma he was forced to endure for so many years and the effects that that had on his mental state that is most culpable for this.'


    'Obviously, he is responsible for his own actions,' she added, 'but it is with compassion and forgiveness that I say I hope help and healing can be found for him. As to the rest of us, myself and the children, we are healthy and holding up as well as we can.'
    When the family returned to Canada in October, they briefly stayed with Boyle's parents in Smith's Falls, Ontario, but have since moved to an apartment in Ottowa.
    A man who answered a call at Boyle's parents' home on Tuesday told CBC that 'we don't have any comment'.






    Pakistani troops rescued the family in an operation October 11 aimed at their captors from the Taliban-linked Haqqani group









    During their captivity, the couple claimed that their guards forced Caitlan to undergo an abortion and even raped her. The group has denied the accusation of sexual assault and the forced abortion, going on to say that Caitlan suffered a miscarriage.
    He also told the AP that he and his wife decided to have children even while held captive because they always planned to have a big family.
    'We're sitting as hostages with a lot of time on our hands,' Boyle said. 'We always wanted as many as possible, and we didn't want to waste time. Cait's in her 30s, the clock is ticking.'


    Boyle said then that their three children were 4, 2 and 'somewhere around 6 months'.
    'Honestly we've always planned to have a family of 5, 10, 12 children... We're Irish, haha,' he wrote in an email in October.






    Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said the operation was based on a tip from US intelligence. Boyle is pictured with one of his children at their family home in Smith Falls, Ontario, Canada



    Pakistani troops rescued the family in an operation October 11 aimed at their captors, the Taliban-linked Haqqani group.


    The Pakistanis caught the Haqqani fighters at some point after they had moved with their captives across the border from Afghanistan.



    Caitlan said that they were being moved in a car when they came under fire and were rescued by the Pakistani forces.



    Boyle said he was hit by shrapnel in the incident and that the last thing he heard his captors say was 'kill the hostages'.



    Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said the operation was based on a tip from US intelligence.
    Boyle was once briefly married to Zaynab Khadr, the older sister of former Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr and the daughter of a senior al-Qaida financier who had contacts with Osama bin Laden.


    The Canadian-born Omar Khadr was 15 when he was captured by US troops following a firefight and was taken to the US detention center at Guantanamo Bay.
    Officials had discounted any link between that background and Boyle's capture, with one describing it in 2014 as a 'horrible coincidence'.


    Boyle and his family met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the leader's office last month.



    A Twitter account named 'The Boyle Family' posted photos of Boyle, his wife, and their three children inside what appears to be the prime minister's Parliament Hill office.
    In September, Trudeau he couldn't imagine what the family were going through.

    From the wife's comments it sure sounds like he did something wrong.

    Yeah, I read that story last night (too tough to post it on my tablet, and I'm visiting my son so don't have access to my PC) and my first thought was, "I knew there was something really "off" about that man!"

    I think the wife is also a few bricks short of a load but I think she's under total control of the husband. Boy, though... it sure didn't take this guy long (they've been in Canada about 2 months!) to get on the radar of law enforcement. Now it makes me wonder even more why he was so insistent that they not stay in the US... avoiding an active inquiry into uis prevous activites, maybe?

    at the start of this, he really wanted this to be the joshua boyle show, and didn't want the wife to be seen much. i think the only reason he allowed the interview with her was because he was advised he better give some sort of access or questions would start to be raised.

    well, he certainly has the attention he was wanting, but i don't think he wanted this

    No news outlet is reporting the identity of the victims....I get the feeling they are minors.
