U.S. soldier in WikiLeaks case to testify about confinement

FORT MEADE, Md. — The U.S. Army private charged in the biggest security breach in U.S. history and accused of sending documents to the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks was expected to testify Tuesday that he’s been punished enough after being locked up alone in a small cell for months and forced to sleep naked for several nights.

Pfc. Bradley Manning’s pretrial hearing was set to run through Sunday in a military court.

His lawyers contend Manning was illegally punished by being locked up alone in a small cell for nearly nine months at the Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Virginia.
