Taliban Video Shows Man Who 'Appears' to Be Captured US Soldier


A video released by the Taliban appears to show captured U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, the IntelCenter terror groups monitoring organization said Wednesday.

Private Bowe Bergdahl, 24, was seized after he wandered off his army base in Paktika Province, in eastern Afghanistan, in June 2009.

The video, released by the Taliban on Tuesday, appears to show Bergdahl and a Taliban commander. It is not made clear when the footage was filmed, with some analysts speculating that it could date from the time of his initial capture.

"The video contains a brief portion of new footage of someone that appears to be U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held hostage by the Taliban since his disappearance from his unit on 30 June, 2009," a statement from US-based IntelCenter said.

Someone who appears to be "Taliban commander Maulawi Sangin," who had threatened to kill Bergdahl in July 2009, was also in the video, IntelCenter added.

The last video that appeared to show Bergdahl was released in April 2010, the monitoring group said.
