Taliban offer to free US soldier

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - The Afghan Taliban is offering to exchange a U.S. soldier for five senior operatives being held at Guantanamo Bay.

A Taliban spokesman tells The Associated Press that once the Taliban operatives are released, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be released.

Bergdahl disappeared in June 2009 in eastern Afghanistan.
