Taliban-linked captors who held American Caitlan Coleman and her family for five years killed her infant daughter and allowed Coleman to be raped by a guard, her husband said, introducing a dramatic new layer to a saga that was already marked by mystery.

Joshua Boyle’s revelations, which authorities have not confirmed, came after the couple and three of their children were rescued Wednesday in Pakistan, where their Haqqani network captors had taken them from Afghanistan.
