Reports: Pvt. Chelsea Manning released from military prison


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the transgender soldier convicted of giving classified government materials to WikiLeaks, was released from a Kansas military prison early Wednesday after serving seven years of her 35-year sentence, according to media reports.

President Barack Obama granted Manning clemency in his final days in office in January. NBC News, citing an unnamed U.S. Army official, reported that Manning was released from Fort Leavenworth military prison at around 2 a.m. Central Time. The BBC, also citing an unnamed Army representative, reported that she had left the facility.

The Associated Press has not confirmed these reports and it is not clear where she was headed.
