WikiLeaks soldier moved to new prison


The U.S. Army private at the center of the WikiLeaks document scandal has been moved from Virginia to a prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, authorities said.
Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of leaking classified military information to the WikiLeaks Web site, was transferred Wednesday from solitary confinement in a Marine brig in Quantico, Va., to a Fort Leavenworth cell adjoining a common area he shares with other inmates, the Kansas City Star reported.
"At this juncture of the case we have decided that the new Joint Regional Correctional Facility at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, is the most appropriate facility for Private Manning for continued pretrial detention," Department of Defense General Counsel Jeh Johnson said.
Manning's transfer to Kansas comes after several international groups, including Amnesty International, criticized Manning's treatment at the Marine jail.
At Quantico, Manning was in solitary confinement 23 hours a day with little or no contact with other inmates, was prohibited from exercising in his cell, and was forced to sleep without blankets or a pillow because he was considered a risk to harm himself.
Manning's move to Fort Leavenworth was unrelated to the criticism of his treatment in Quantico, Johnson said, describing his pretrial confinement there as being in "compliance with legal and regulatory standards" in all respects.
