The Taliban have released a 17-minute video showing the handover of US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl to the American military close to the Afghan border with Pakistan, in an exchange for five militants held at US jail Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The video shows a Bergdahl, clean shaven, dressed in a white salwar kameez and with a shaved head, waiting in a white pick-up truck as Taliban militants outside lean in to talk to him. He appears to blink in the bright light, assenting as they speak.

The video's authenticity could not be independently verified.
