The Taliban has released a new video of US soldier Bowe Bergdahl, captured last year in Afghanistan, calling for his exchange for Taliban prisoners, the IntelCenter monitoring service said Thursday.


The nearly eight-minute-long video showed Bergdahl, in a beard and wearing an army jacket, reading a newspaper and doing pushups, the service said.


Video released by Taliban


Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid is heard at the end of the video making a statement, with English subtitles, reiterating Taliban demands for the release "a limited number of prisoners in exchange for this American prisoner."


"Unfortunately, the arrogant American rulers are not ready to take any step in this regard," it said, according to IntelCenter.


Bergdahl was captured June 30, 2009. The Taliban has already released two earlier videos showing him to be alive.
