New Taliban Hostage Video Shows Pennsylvania Woman and Her Children

One of the Person said about the Footage was the footage came from the Haqqani network and a close affiliate of the Afgan Taliban and it had been delivered to both U.S and Canadian and they have posted on Youtube late on Monday Night.

A chilling new video released showing an American woman and her family held hostage by a Taliban faction in Afghanistan since 2012.

She appealed to President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump to rescue her family. "You must give them these things". The couple set off in the summer for a journey that took them to Russian Federation, the central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, and then to Afghanistan.

Their plight could put to a test yet another long-standing American policy once Donald Trump assumes the presidency: that the USA does not make deals of concessions with terrorists to gain the release of hostages. "But I am satisfied that we are doing everything we can at this juncture to understand who took them and try to bring them back", said U.S. Army General Joseph Votel, head of Central Command, at a Pentagon briefing on Tuesday. It is the first time there has been a "proof of life" of the children.

Islamists seized the expectant Coleman and her partner inside Afghanistan in 2012 while on a backpacking trip. She is considered a hostage held against her will by the US government even if no ransom demand has ever been made, officials have told ABC News.

"My children have seen their mother defiled", she added ominously, as the children sat in Boyle's lap.

"We are told that there are Afghans who are prisoners in Kabul that these men care about, and they do not want to be punished".

In the video, 31-year-old Coleman pleads for freedom from the family's "Kafkaesque nightmare" as Boyle, 33, holds the fidgeting children who were seen for the first time in Monday's video. The figure also said the Haqqani network asked for the release of three of their senior members, including Sirajuddin Haqqani's brother and uncle.

In those statements, Kirby called for the family's "immediate release on humanitarian grounds" and said the USA would "continue to work aggressively" to bring all American hostages home.
