The US Army has charged an American soldier suspected of leaking a military video of an attack in Iraq with multiple counts of mishandling and leaking classified data and putting national security at risk.

Bradley Manning is suspected of leaking a video that shows Apache helicopters gunning down unarmed men. The video was posted on the website last April.

Spc Manning was detained in Baghdad in early June and is being held in Kuwait. A military version of a grand jury hearing will determine if he should face a trial by court martial.
