WASHINGTON - The US soldier accused of leaking secret documents that appeared on the WikiLeaks website was transferred to a Kansas military jail on Wednesday, the Pentagon said.

Manning is being held during the investigation of charges involving reams of sensitive diplomatic and military documents he is accused of leaking while posted as an intelligence analyst in Iraq.

He was moved to Fort Leavenworth's Joint Regional Correctional Facility, after being held in detention at a US Marine base in Quantico, Virginia, since May of last year.
