An American woman who was held hostage by the Taliban with her husband in Afghanistan for five years, told how he was a & # 39; sympathizer & # 39; who repeatedly raped her and forced her to have three more children.

Caitlan Coleman was rescued together with her husband Joshua Boyle and their three children in 2017, five years after being taken by Taliban militants.

She and her husband went to the region for a vacation, and when they were rescued, they fled directly to Canada.

Since then he has been accused of sexually abusing her after their return and questions have been raised about his motives for the trip.

He is now awaiting his next judicial date in Ottawa for charges of mistreatment, rape, drying and unlawful restraint on his wife, which he all denies.

Caitlan, from Pennysylvania, now speaks out against him.

In an interview with ABC & # 39; s Nightline who will come out on Friday, she has told how he is a & # 39; Taliban sympathizer & # 39; was when they ventured into the region, but became more offensive to her than her captors after being held hostage when she was six months pregnant in 2012.

Joshua Boyle is tried in Canada for allegedly abusing her sexually after they returned there after being liberated by US forces

Caitlan Coleman was rescued together with her husband Joshua Boyle and their three children in 2017, five years after being taken in by Taliban militants.

She also said that he forced her to have sex with him and that while she never physically resisted him, it was not horrible to sleep with him.

& # 39; Before the capture, I wanted to have a family with Josh, but in captivity, I had no choice as to whether or not we would have children in captivity if they had to go through that.

& # 39; That was certainly not something that I wanted for my children, & # 39; she said.

When asked if she was raped, she said: & # 39; Yes. I am not saying that I have been physically struggling, but I am saying that I found relationships with him quite horrible, but I had no choice.

& # 39; Not only was it psychological, it was physical, it was sexual. I was actually more scared of him than of the kidnappers, & she said.

In 2012, the couple continued with what they thought would be a trip to Asia when he proposed to & # 39; in Afghanistan & # 39; to dive. She was six months pregnant at that time

When the family returned to Canada, they claimed to be close, but Caitlan said afterwards that she was still a & # 39; prisoner & # 39; felt. She escaped Joshua with her three children and reported to the police how he had treated her. They are shown with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, after they have returned to Canada in 2017

She also told how he had gone from claiming that he had the & # 39; inner story & # 39; from the Taliban from a journalistic perspective to sympathize with the group.

& # 39; He believed that the Taliban were misrepresented in the West, that he could get the real story.

& # 39; Go to places where no one else could go. Suddenly it is as if he is dropping some sort of a pacifist appearance.

& # 39; It is as if, when we were no longer near Westerners, he could drop his neutrality somewhat, & # 39; she said.

She says he forced her to meet the people who would kidnap them and that she had no choice but to follow him because he had all their money and passports with him.

She was six months pregnant at the time and they had made a tour of South Asia when he told her in 2012 that she & # 39; in Afghanistan & # 39; would dive.

& # 39; He would always tell me & # 39 ;, I think they are misrepresented in the West, I think they are good people, when you meet them, you will see it & # 39 ;.

& # 39; So I saw it. And they are, with the exception of my husband, the worst people I have ever known in my life, & she said.

In the end, she said the kidnappers only & # 39; left, but her husband became more and more violent.

Once back in Canada, she said he assumed the role of her controller and captor.

& # 39; He limited almost everything. I had no freedom as far as, you know, where I would go, who I would talk to, how I would dress, what I would say, & she said.

& # 39; I really felt that I was still a prisoner. There was not really a big change in my life from the moment we were in Pakistan in the hands of the Haqqanis and when I was at the Embassy Suites Hotel [in Ottawa] with Josh, & she said.

Boyle has denied being a Nazi sympathizer or raping his wife. His lawsuit is about gaps.
