Taliban Releases Video Of Canadian Held In Afghanistan


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.
