And he’s refusing to board the American plane leaving Pakistan because he thinks he’ll be arrested.
It seems the Khadr family can’t stay out of the headlines. Joshua Boyle, the Canadian hostage held by terrorists in Pakistan along with his wife Caitlan Coleman and their three young children were rescued by Pakistani special forces.
Now, it turns out that Boyle was once married to Omar Khadr’s sister Zaynab. And, he’s refusing to board an American military plane because he fears that he will be arrested for his relationship to Zaynab.
As reported by the Daily Mail, “Boyle and Khadr were married between 2009 and 2010. They grew close when he volunteered to be the family’s spokesman during the media row surrounding Omar’s detention.”
Additionally, “Zaynab, who shot to infamy in 2004 after defending the 9/11 attacks, now lives in Sudan. She has long been suspected of supporting al-Qaeda but has never been charged. Boyle and Zaynab were married before he married Coleman in 2011 – year before he and his American wife were captured in Afghanistan.”
Those who know Boyle reportedly say he had an “academic interest” in terrorism. There is also speculation that he was in the process of converting to Islam at the time he and Caitlan Coleman were captured.
Boyle and Coleman have three young children, all of whom were born in captivity. It is believed other children may have died in captivity.
