Taliban Releases Video Of Canadian Held In Afghanistan
May 09, 2011
The Taliban have released a video of a Canadian national kidnapped in Afghanistan and said he could face trial in one of their courts.
The militant Islamists say they captured Colin Rutherford in the central province of Ghazni -- although it's not clear when -- and accuse him of spying.
Ottawa says the 26-year-old traveled to Afghanistan as a tourist.
In the video, a man named as Rutherford is shown answering questions posed by an unseen interrogator.
