BERLIN (AFP) - United States soldier Bowe Bergdahl, released on Saturday after being held for five years by the Taleban in Afghanistan, arrived in Germany, according to the United States military medical centre there.

Sgt Bergdahl will now remain at the Landstuhl centre in southern Germany while he continues what the US army called his "reintegration process", the base said in a statement on Sunday.

The base said there was "no pre-determined amount of time involved" for Sgt Bergdahl's recovery process, adding the medical staff at Landstuhl were "sensitive" to what he had gone through and would "proceed with his reintegration at a pace with which he is comfortable".

"The full focus of the Landstuhl team is to provide necessary medical care and a safe environment for his recovery," the statement added.
