Transcript: Family Held Hostage by Militants in Afghanistan Freed

Five years after militants in Afghanistan took an American woman and her Canadian husband hostage, the couple is finally free.

The White House  said Thursday  the U.S. and Pakistani governments had secured the release of Caitlan Coleman, Joshua Boyle and their three children.

Coleman was born in Florida.

Coleman and Boyle were kidnapped by the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network in Afghanistan in 2012.

Word of the family's freedom came a day after President Donald Trump  appeared to hint  at the news during a speech in Pennsylvania. "Something happened today, where a country that totally disrespected us called with some very, very important news," Trump said.

As of Thursday morning, the details surrounding the family's recovery weren't announced yet.
