American woman held hostage by Taliban for nearly four years has second child in captivity

The parents of an American woman held hostage for almost four years in South Asia by Islamist militants said today that their daughter has given birth to a second son in captivity.
James Coleman and his wife Lynda of Stewartstown, Penn., revealed that a second grandchild was born to their daughter Caitlan Coleman, 29, in an interview with Circa, saying the news came in a letter they received last November.
The parents also made a new video in which they deliver a direct Ramadan plea to new Taliban leader Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada.
"Thank you for sharing such wonderful news. These blessings brought us great joy," James Coleman said in the video. "Such news has also brought us great sorrow. We desperately want to be with our daughter and hold our grandsons, who we long to meet and care for."
