US Army Sergeant held by Taliban in American custody

US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, held for nearly five years by the Taliban, is now in US custody, President Barack Obama said on Saturday.

As part of Bergdahl's release, the United States is turning over five Taliban detainees at the US facility in Guantanamo, Cuba, to the custody of Qatar, US officials said.

Bergdahl's freedom follows months of indirect US-Taliban talks with Qatar acting as intermediary, the officials said.
