Parts of Bradley Manning Trial to be Closed to Public

The judge in the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning said that she will close portions of the trial to the public to protect classified material, a ruling that is likely to frustrate civil liberties groups that have alleged the case is being shrouded in secrecy.

Prosecutors are expected to call 150 witnesses to testify against Manning, who is accused of leaking more than 700,000 government and military documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. Although the material is widely available online, it remains classified.
