Default Canadian man captured by Taliban five years ago freed by militants

A Canadian man captured by the Taliban in 2010 has been freed. The last indication the Toronto manís family had that he was alive came in a 2011 video released by insurgents where he answered questions; an accompanying email accused Rutherford, then 26, of being a spy.

Nice to have a good outcome to a hostage story for a change.

I heard something on CBC about a helicopter being used while planes flew air support overhead.
Don't know if it was verified or anything, obviously.
