FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Prosecutors at the court-martial of an Army private at Fort Meade remain focused on the more than 250,000 State Department diplomatic cables he gave to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

The trial of Pfc. Bradley Manning enters its fifth week Monday at the Army installation near Baltimore. Manning is charged with aiding the enemy and 20 other offenses.

He admits leaking the cables while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq but denies stealing them. Manning says reading cables on a classified computer network was part of his job. He says he sent them to WikiLeaks to expose secret deals and hypocrisy by American diplomats.

A State Department official says at least 117 of the cables contained classified information potentially harmful to national security.
