Taliban releases handover video showing Bowe Bergdahl

The Taliban has released a video showing the moment captured soldier Bowe Bergdahl was handed to US forces in eastern Afghanistan.

Sgt Bergdahl was released on Saturday after five years in captivity.

US President Barack Obama has defended the decision to free five senior Taliban leaders as part of the deal, amid criticism it puts lives at risk.

The BBC's Bilal Sarwary has been analysing the footage.
