Prosecution rests case against Manning

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - The prosecution has completed laying out its case against an Army intelligence analyst blamed for the biggest leak of U.S. classified information in American history.

The government on Tuesday called a former hacker to testify. He told the military court that the depth of Pfc. Bradley Manning's confession in Internet chats compelled him to alert authorities.

Shortly after Adrian Lamo's testimony, the government rested its case.

Manning is accused of providing a massive trove of U.S. secrets to the WikiLeaks website.

The hearing is to determine whether the 24-year-old from Oklahoma should be court-martialed.

The hearing has been recessed until Wednesday when the defense will get its turn.
