Bowe Bergdahl: Taliban video shows US soldier handover

The Taliban have released a video showing the handover of US soldier, Sergeant Bowe Bergdhal, after five years in captivity.

The footage shows Sergeant Bergdhal wearing Afghan clothing and being searched before he boards a helicopter.

He was freed at the weekend in exchange for five Taliban militants who had been detained at Guantanamo Bay. The swap has caused controversy in the US.

The BBC's North America Editor Mark Mardell reports.
