Boyle did not say whether the militants killed a child, only that his captors were responsible for "authorizing the murder" of his infant daughter.

Upon his return to Canada Friday, Joshua Boyle told reporters that during his five years in captivity, held by the Taliban-linked Haqqani network in Afghanistan, his wife's rape was assisted by the captain of the guard and supervised by the commandant of the network.

After their recovery, the family of five were to go by plane to Afghanistan's Bagram air base, but Boyle declined to board the plane. "The area was remote, no doctors were present and due to this severe condition, the woman had a natural miscarriage of a girl", Mujahid said in a statement.

'We strongly reject these fake and fabricated allegations of this Canadian family, now in the hands of the enemy, ' he said in a statement sent to media'.

A senior Pakistani security source on Friday detailed how the family, who were expected to leave Pakistan on Friday, were freed following a auto chase in Pakistan's northwestern tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Boyle told CNN he cooperated with the Pakistani military in making a video not long after his family's rescue.

"No one has ever killed a child of this couple, and nobody has ever raped or defiled".

The Haqqani network, a group that operates in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, is headed by Sirajuddin Haqqani, who is also the Afghan Taliban's deputy leader.

"God has given me and my family unparalleled resilience and determination, and to allow that to stagnate, to pursue personal pleasure or comfort while there is still deliberate and organized injustice in the world would be a betrayal of all I believe, and tantamount to sacrilege", he wrote.

He told a reporter on the plane that the '(US State Department's) interests are not my interests'.

Ms. Coleman was pregnant when the couple has begun its journey in Afghanistan with the intention to help the populations of the regions under the control of the taliban, explained Mr Boyle.

He told ABC News: 'Taking your pregnant wife to a very unsafe place, to me, and the kind of person that I am, it's unconscionable'.

According to reports, the younger child has health problems.

The Canadian, his wife and their children were intercepted by Pakistani forces while being transported in the back of their captors' vehicle. Boyle said after landing at Toronto's airport that the extremists killed their newborn daughter and raped his wife during the years they were held.

A senior official had said Boyle refused to board an American military plane on Thursday over concerns he could face arrest.

He said his goal now is to build "a secure sanctuary for our three surviving children to call a home. and try to regain some portion of the childhood that they have lost".

Boyle was previously married to the sister of Omar Khadr, a Canadian imprisoned for 10 years at the United States detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, after fighting U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
