WASHINGTON — U.S. officials say they have received a new video of captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, but it is not clear when the video was taken.

A senior defense official says the video came to light several days ago, but there were no other details.

Bergdahl, who is from Idaho, was taken prisoner in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009. It is believed he is being held somewhere in Pakistan.

The Taliban have said they would free him in exchange for several of their most senior operatives who are being detained at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The officials were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.
