The Taliban have released a video showing Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's handover to U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports:

In the 17 minute video the Taliban can been seen handing over Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. He's clean shaven, dressed in white and appears to be blinking as his eyes adjust to the bright sun.

Militants can be seen celebrating as they shout Taliban victory slogans -- after the Blackhawk helicopters whisk Bergdahl away -- a sign in English flashes up saying "Don't come back to Afghanistan". 

The Pentagon cannot authenticate the video but says there's no reason to think it isn't real.
