Opening arguments begin today in Wikileaks trial

Opening arguments are set to begin today in the court martial of former marine Bradley Manning.

Manning, 25, is accused of leaking thousands of classified documents to the website Wikileaks in what is believed to be the largest leak in U.S. history.

Manning has said he wanted to show the public how America was fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He faces 21 counts of espionage including directly aiding the enemy and could face life in prison if convicted.
