US soldier in hostage video


An American soldier who went missing from his base in Afghanistan on 30 June has appeared in a video posted on the internet by the Taliban on Saturday.

The Pentagon has identified him as Private Bowe Bergdahl, 23, of Ketchum, Idaho, and confirmed that his status is now classified as 'missing-captured', rather than 'whereabouts unknown'.
