New Video of Captive Idaho Soldier Bowe Bergdahl

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Idaho family of captured U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is renewing their call for his release after the seeing a new video of him. U.S. officials say they believe the video was taken within the last month, showing that the soldier is alive after nearly five years of captivity.

A senior defense official said the video came to light several days ago. Another official said that Bergdahl appeared in poorer health than previous videos. Bergdahl was taken prisoner in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009.

It is believed he is being held somewhere in Pakistan. The family released a statement asking that Bergdahl’s captors “release him safely” so he can be reunited with his mother and father. The officials were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Bergdahl has been in captivity since 2009 in Afghanistan. The actual video has not surfaced on the web yet, but CNN says it seems the footage was shot in December last year.
