Bradley Manning: Court martial verdict due on Wikileaks release

A military judge is set to issue a verdict in the court martial of the US soldier who disclosed reams of secret documents to the Wikileaks website.

Pte Bradley Manning, 25, has acknowledged leaking the documents but denies the most serious charge of "aiding the enemy".

He has already pleaded guilty to 10 lesser charges out of 22 total, and faces life in prison if convicted.

Rajini Vaidyanathan reports.
