The Taliban released video early Wednesday morning which purports to show the moments Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released into U.S. custody.
A link to the footage was initially tweeted out by a Taliban spokesperson, followed by ABC News foreign correspondent Muhammad Lila and Washington Post Kabul bureau chief Kevin Sieff.
It shows a helicopter land in a green valley, as apparent members of the Taliban stand perched on surrounding hills with weapons.
Non-uniformed individuals, likely Americans, then walk over and shake hands with Bergdahl’s captors, who are holding a white flag.
A shaky Bergdahl, seen holding a plastic bag, then appears to be escorted to the military chopper. The entire handover appears peaceful.
Over the weekend, President Barack Obama announced that Bergdahl had been released, in exchange for five members of the Taliban that had been held at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
