Bomb kills four Pakistani troops searching for kidnappers

  Bomb kills four Pakistani troops searching for kidnappers A bomb Sunday killed four Pakistani soldiers as they searched for militants linked to the kidnapping of a US-Canadian family who were freed last week. The incident happened near the Kharlachi checkpoint in Kurram district in the restive tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.The family were being held by the Taliban-allied Haqqani network in the tribal area until they were rescued during a Pakistani military operation Wednesday. "Four security force troops including a captain embraced shahadat (martyrdom) while three others sustained injuries when an improvised explosive device went off," the military said in a statement.

The Taliban source claimed that U.S. officials told the Taliban and the government of Qatar that they’d be grateful for “any help” bringing American hostages home . the father of the girl called her “naive” and “adventuresome.” how about STUPID? anyone want to make a bet that after a lot of convoluted

If it is a Muslim/symp like Bergdahl, Obama will bring him home . And the father was obviously expressing his ‘unity’ with the Gitmo prisoners, in effect the Taliban , etc. Bergdahl’s dad tweeted he want to free all at Gitmo.

The family was freed from captivity Thursday. Boyle is a Canadian and Coleman is an American. Coleman was pregnant at the time of their kidnapping and had two more children while held hostage.

The US official said there are some questions surrounding Boyle's past, though there is no indication he faces arrest.

In response to reports of Boyle declining to board the flight, Department of Justice spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle said, "Coleman and Boyle are not charged with any federal crime and, as such, we do not seek their arrest."

Boyle's father said his son told him he wanted to cooperate to make sure his family's captors were brought to justice "for the horrendous things they did to his wife."

"Josh is anxious to provide the evidence needed to bring the captors to justice, as I said, for what they did to his wife, which is much more horrendous than she described in the video," Patrick Boyle said, referencing footage posted online of the imprisoned family.

(Source: CNN) An American woman, her Canadian husband and their three children have been freed from captivity by Pakistani security forces, nearly five years after being taken hostage by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Coleman and Boyle were held hostage by the Haqqani Network for five years after their kidnapping in 2012. The Pakistani Army announced it had freed the couple along with their three children -- all of whom were born in captivity.

US officials said they shared intelligence with Pakistan when the family was moved into the country, and the Trump administration confirmed the news on Thursday that they had been freed.

Details about how they were freed were not immediately clear, and in the interview, Patrick Boyle recounted what he heard from his son.

"The five of them being in the back of a car being transferred and a car being stopped, surrounded by, Josh described, 35 Pakistani Army officials," Boyle said. "A firefight breaking out, that all five captors had been killed by the Pakistani Army, and all five of our Boyles are safe and okay. Josh said he was hit with some shrapnel and our governments have confirmed that he was damaged in the leg. That's all we know right now about that."

Boyle said the sudden turn of events was nothing short of miraculous.

"Cait, in her last video said if all five of them make it out, it's going to be a miracle," Boyle said. "And we're living a miracle."

Hostage Escapes After Armed Burglar Falls Asleep, Cops Say .
A Florida man allegedly burst into a hotel room last weekend and held the occupant hostage at gunpoint, only to doze off and lose the captive. Police say Jerry Allen Mills Jr. knocked on the door of a room at a Panama City Days Inn, and when the person inside answered, forced his way inside. Mills allegedly threatened to shoot the hotel guest if he tried to leave. The two remained in the room for an “extended period of time,” police said, until Mills fell asleep. Recognizing the opportunity, the hostage left while he had the chance. Authorities said that when Mills woke up, he went to the hotel’s front desk and ended up in a confrontation with three clerks.
