FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - The court-marshal of an Army private who sent troves of classified documents to WikiLeaks is turning to information gathered from Guantanamo Bay detainees.
Pfc. Bradley Manning's trial enters its sixth day Wednesday at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.
Prosecutors plan to present evidence about more than 700 Gitmo detainee assessment briefs the former intelligence analyst has acknowledged leaking in March 2010. WikiLeaks published the documents on its website a month later.
The Washington Post reported that they revealed details about the movements of al-Qaida leaders during 2001.
Manning has said he didn't consider the reports important from an intelligence or national security standpoint but hoped they would have historical value.
He has pleaded not guilty to a charge that he stole the documents from a U.S. Southern Command database.
