      Prosecution winding down in Bradley Manning trial

      Bradley Manning


      Prosecutors say they are close to the end of their case in the court-martial of an Army private who leaked mountains of classified information to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.


      They called what they said was their last witness Monday. The court-martial will resume Tuesday.


      Prosecutors have presented testimony from 79 other witnesses since the trial began June 3.


      Manning faces 21 counts, including aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence.


      Prosecutors have presented evidence the former intelligence analyst used military computers in Iraq to download reams of documents and battlefield video from a classified network.


      Manning has said he meant to expose military wrongdoing by leaking the material.
