Bradley Manning's sentence to be announced on Wednesday
FORT MEADE, Maryland (AP) - A US military judge on Tuesday started considering the sentence of soldier Bradley Manning for the largest leak of classified information in the country's history - and she said it will be announced at 1400 GMT on Wednesday.
Manning faces up to 90 years in prison for giving the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks more than 700,000 US military and diplomatic documents and battlefield video documenting civilian deaths.
On Monday, a prosecutor said Manning should spend 60 years in prison because he betrayed the U.S.
The soldier's defence attorney didn't recommend a specific punishment but suggested any prison term shouldn't exceed 25 years, saying the classification of some of the leaked documents expires in 25 years.
