Pakistani soldiers have freed a North American family of five who were being held hostage by the Afghan Taliban.

Canadian Joshua Boyle and his US wife Caitlan Coleman were kidnapped while backpacking in Afghanistan in 2012.

They had three children while in captivity.

The Pakistani army said They were rescued after a US tip-off during an operation near the Afghan border.

US President Donald Trump said it was a "positive moment" for US-Pakistan ties.
