Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, who released more than 700,000 documents to WikiLeaks,  was sentenced to 35 years in prison by a judge in Maryland, where we begin Wednesday’s Pictures in the News. The sentencing ends a summer-long court-martial in which Manning, 25,  was found guilty of  violating the Espionage Act and mishandling classified material but acquitted of a more serious charge of aiding the enemy.
