Freed years after being taken hostage in Afghanistan, Canadian Joshua Boyle, his American wife and their three children are back in Canada to "the first true 'home' that the children have ever known," after Boyle condemned his captors for raping his wife and authorizing "the murder of my infant daughter."

The family's flight from London touched down before midnight Friday night at Toronto's Pearson airport, where Boyle told reporters he wants to build a "secure sanctuary" for their three children.

Overnight, the family arrived in Smiths Falls, Ont., where Joshua Boyle's parents live. Prior to the abduction, Boyle and his wife had been living in Perth-Andover, N.B.

In a statement emailed to CBC's Susan Ormiston on Saturday, Joshua Boyle said the family had "reached the first true 'home' that the children have ever known after they spent most of Friday asking if each subsequent airport was our new house hopefully."

Boyle and Caitlan Coleman were abducted five years ago while on a backpacking trip in Afghanistan, and were being held by the Haqqani network.

Coleman was pregnant with their first child, a boy, when the couple were captured by theTaliban-linked militant group. Another boy and a girl were born while the family was being held hostage.

Boyle, after arriving at Pearson airport, spoke in a statement for the first time about another daughter that he says was killed by his captors.

Boyle said he travelled to the country to help "the most neglected minority group in the world, those ordinary villagers who live deep inside Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.":rolleyes:
