HOUSTON - A US Army official has recommended that the Army major charged in the 2009 shooting rampage at a Texas Army base face a court martial and possible death penalty charges, the US Army said on Friday.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a 40-year-old Army psychiatrist who US officials linked to a radical Muslim cleric in Yemen, is charged in a shooting spree at Fort Hood that killed 13 people and wounded 32 others on Nov. 5, 2009.
