US Army Sergeant Bergdahl arrives in Texas
US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's settled into a Texas hospital as part of the latest phase of his rehabilitation after five years in Taliban captivity.
He arrived at the Brook Army Medical Center today after an initial stay at a US military hospital in Germany.
Bergdahl was handed over to US forces in Afghanistan on May 31st in exchange for five Taliban leaders held at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
The deal has led to allegations that US President Barack Obama's violated his own government's policy against negotiating with those it considers terrorists.
Some of Bergdahl's former colleagues are also unhappy. They allege he deserted when he walked away from his outpost in circumstances which are still far from clear.
