A video shot by the Taliban appears to show US soldier Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who has spent five years in Taliban captivity, being handed back into US custody.
The footage shows Bergdahl sitting in a silver pick-up truck before getting out of the vehicle with a plastic bag and being frisked before being taken away in a helicopter.
Armed men can be seen on the hillside above him as one of his escorts waves a white flag.
