Freed soldier at US military hospital in Germany

BERLIN (AP) — The U.S. soldier freed in Afghanistan after being held for nearly five years by insurgents has arrived at an American military hospital in Germany. It's not immediately clear how long he will stay there before continuing to the United States.

The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center said in a statement that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl arrived at the facility in southwestern Germany Sunday morning.

The hospital said its staff "will evaluate his condition, begin any necessary medical care and assist in his recovery process." It added that they are "sensitive to what Sgt. Bergdahl has been through and will proceed with his reintegration at a pace with which he is comfortable."

The hospital says that there is "no pre-determined amount of time" for the reintegration process.
