Defense seeks soldier's release in WikiLeaks case

Maryland — The lawyer for a US Army private suspected of passing thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks said he has asked the government to release his client from a Marine Corps jail due to what he says are needlessly harsh pretrial confinement conditions.

Civilian attorney David Coombs said in a blog posting Thursday that the conditions of Pfc. Bradley Manning's confinement in Quantico, Virginia, are more rigorous than needed to ensure his presence at trial.
