Prosecution winding down in WikiLeaks case

By  | 

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - Prosecutors say they are close to the end of their case in the court-martial of an Army private who leaked mountains of classified information to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

They called what they said was their last witness Monday. The court-martial will resume Tuesday.

Prosecutors have presented testimony from 79 other witnesses since the trial began June 3.

Manning faces 21 counts, including aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence.

Prosecutors have presented evidence the former intelligence analyst used military computers in Iraq to download reams of documents and battlefield video from a classified network.

Manning has said he meant to expose military wrongdoing by leaking the material.
