Taliban releases video of Bergdahl prisoner swap

The Taliban has released a video showing the moment Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. Special Forces in Afghanistan in exchange for five Taliban fighters.

The footage shows a clean shaven Bergdahl, dressed in Afghan clothes, sitting in the back of a pick-up truck. Moments later, a Black Hawk helicopter lands and he's handed over to the U.S. military.

The swap is made as dozens of Taliban fighters, armed with AK-47s and rocket propelled grenades, watch on a nearby hillside.
