Official: Taliban locked Sgt. Bergdahl in cage after escape attempt

OutFront tonight – breaking news on Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl and his time in captivity.

CNN's Barbara Starr reports Bergdahl suffered physical abuse during his five years with the Taliban, and at one point was confined to a cage as punishment after managing to escape for a short period of time.

Joining the discussion tonight are Roy Hallums, an American contractor who was kidnapped in Iraq in 2004 and spent 311 days in captivity, and retired Lieutenant Colonel Geoffrey Corn, a former JAG attorney.
