Taliban releases US navy veteran in prisoner swap

The Taliban has released an American citizen in exchange for an Afghan tribal leader.
Afghanistan’s foreign minister says US navy veteran Mark Frerichs was exchanged for Taliban associate Haji Bashir Noorzai.
Noorzai was serving life in a US prison on drug charges, while contractor Mark Frerichs had been detained in Afghanistan since early 2020.
