WASHINGTON - The U.S. military has released some court documents in the case of an Army soldier accused of giving hundreds of thousands of pages of classified material to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
The 84 documents released Wednesday include rulings that were read aloud in court and routine court orders.
The Department of Defence says more documents will be released after they are reviewed and redacted as needed.
WikiLeaks and several journalists and news organizations have filed a lawsuit seeking timely public access to the Manning court documents. That case is pending before the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, the military's highest court.
Manning is charged with aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence.
