KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- The Taliban have released a video showing the handover of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to U.S. forces in eastern Afghanistan.
 
The video, emailed to media on Wednesday, shows Bergdahl in traditional Afghan clothing sitting in a pickup truck parked on a hillside. More than a dozen Taliban fighters with machineguns stand around the truck and on the hillside.
 
Bergdahl is seen blinking frequently as he looks at and listens to his captors.
 
A Black Hawk helicopter then lands and two Taliban fighters, one carrying a white flag, lead Bergdahl half way. He is greeted and taken by three Western-looking men in civilian clothing to the helicopter, where soldiers in Army uniforms are waiting.
 
After five years in captivity, Bergdahl was released Saturday in a swap for five Taliban detainees from Guantanamo.
