Joshua Boyle, the Canadian man held hostage by Taliban-linked militants for nearly five years, has been arrested in Ottawa and is facing more than a dozen charges including sexual assault, forcible confinement and uttering death threats.

Boyle was rescued in late 2017 in Pakistan, along with his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, and their three young children, all of whom were born in captivity.
