The Taliban has released a video showing the handover of U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl to U.S. forces in eastern Afghanistan. Bergdahl, who was held captive for five years, was exchanged on May 31 for five Taliban prisoners being held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay. The video on the Taliban-run Al-Amara website shows U.S. troops arriving by helicopter to pick up Bergdahl from armed militants. Text stating "Don't come back to Afghanistan" is superimposed on the video. (Reuters)
