FBI investigates threats against Bergdahl family

US authorities are investigating threats against the family of former Taliban prisoner Bowe Bergdahl.



Washington: US authorities are investigating threats against the family of former Taliban prisoner Bowe Bergdahl.

FBI spokesman William Facer said yesterday in a statement: "The FBI continues to monitor the situation in Hailey, Idaho. We are working jointly with our state and local partners and taking each threat seriously."

The soldier`s parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, live in Hailey. Facer did not detail the nature of the threats.

Bergdahl`s hometown abruptly canceled plans on Wednesday for a welcome-home celebration, citing security concerns.

The town of 8,000 has been swamped with hate mail and angry calls. Bergdahl`s release after five years of captivity in Afghanistan has touched off a debate over whether the 28-year-old should be given a hero`s welcome or punished as a deserter.
