US special operations forces took custody of Army Sergeant Bergdahl in non-violent exchange in eastern Afghanistan, the officials said, adding that he was believed to be in good condition and undergoing a medical examination in Afghanistan.
Bergdahl, who is from Idaho, was the only known missing soldier in the Afghan war. He was captured under unknown circumstances in eastern Afghanistan by militants on June 30, 2009, about two months after arriving in the country.
