Taliban Says Bergdahl Was Treated Well

In light of reports that the health of American soldier Bowe Bergdahl deteriorated while in captivity, the Taliban said Friday that Bergdahl was treated well during the five years they held him captive.

A spokesman for the group told The Associated Press that Bergdahl was held under "good conditions," and was given fresh fruit and any other foods he requested. "You can ask him in America about his life (in captivity). He will not complain," said the spokesman.
