A welcome-home party for a US soldier who was held prisoner in Afghanistan for five years, has been cancelled.

Organisers said the event in his home town of Hailey, Idaho, has been cancelled because they were worried too many people would turn up.

Sgt Bowe Bergdahl was released by his Taliban captors on Saturday.

But some former soldiers have called him a deserter, meaning he walked away without permission - and have called for him to be punished.

Martin's got more on the story.
