WASHINGTON - The US military has brought 22 new charges against the junior soldier accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of sensitive US government documents that ended up being published by WikiLeaks. The US will not seek the death penalty against the soldier, AP reported.
Bradley Manning, a former intelligence analyst suspected of disclosing the documents, is being held at a Marine base in Virginia as US officials investigate last year's publication of US State Department cables and military documents related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
