Later, Boyle's parents made a video to address the captivators, saying: "We've done the best an ordinary Canadian family can do".

Boyle and his wife, Caitlan Coleman, and their three children were rescued Wednesday, five years after being abducted while on a backpacking trip in Afghanistan.

Joshua Boyle told a harrowing account of his and his family's ordeal to The Toronto Star, a brief segment of which touched on how he was informed of current events in the USA prior to filming a "proof-of-life" video.

Boyle told The Star about the effect of captivity on his children, the conditions of their cell and that of the treatment imposed on them by their captors, who were members of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network. They were rescued by Pakistani troops just last week on a tip from USA intelligence. In the seat beyond that was Mr Boyle, with their youngest in his lap.

His family said some of his captors were killed and Mr Boyle suffered a shrapnel wound.

"Taking your pregnant wife to a very risky place, to me, and the kind of person I am, is unconscionable", Jim Coleman told ABC News. Boyle filmed the video but thought the comment about the mentally crippled reality television star was a joke.

Boyle later played with one of his sons in the garden of his parents' home.

"Obviously it will be of incredible importance to my family that we are able to build a secure sanctuary for our three surviving children to call home, to focus on edification and to try to regain some portion of the childhood that they have lost".

Mr 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. They divorced in 2010.

The US Justice Department said neither Boyle nor Coleman is wanted for any federal crime.

In the email exchange, Mr Boyle did not respond to a question about the fourth child. Officials had discounted any link between that background and Boyle's capture, with one describing it in 2014 as a "horrible coincidence".
