Bowe Bergdahl tells the U.S. of harsh treatment by Taliban captors

He has told medical officials that his captors locked him in a metal cage in total darkness for weeks at a time as punishment for trying to escape, according to U.S. officials who have been briefed on his condition. Although military doctors say he now is physically able to travel, he is not yet emotionally ready for the pressures of reuniting with his family, the officials say.
