Bradley Manning, the US soldier accused of handing secret files to WikiLeaks, has been formally charged with “aiding the enemy”.

Manning chose to defer a plea on all of the 22 charges against him. The former army intelligence analyst has been detained since May 2010.

The 24-year-old’s trial is not set to begin until August. Manning is alleged to have leaked more than 260,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks.

He is accused of releasing the secret files between November 2009 and the following May whilst serving in Iraq.
