Obama partially pardons Chelsea Manning.


President Barack Obama has commuted Manning’s sentence for leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Manning is a  29 yrs US Army private, born as  Bradley Manning will be released on 17 May.

First she was sentenced to 35 years for leaking documents.

The leak was one of the largest leaks in US History.

The commutation reduces Manning’s sentence but is not a pardon, which some campaigners had called for.
