FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - The court-martial of an Army private who leaked reams of government secrets is entering its fourth week at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.

The military judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, is calling Tuesday's session a status hearing, with no testimony expected.

She has yet to rule on a defense motion seeking to block the admission of tweets and web pages that prosecutors say were posted by WikiLeaks in 2009.

The government alleges the material shows that Pfc. Bradley Manning collaborated with the anti-secrecy organization to disclose classified information.

The 22-year-old former intelligence analyst faces 21 counts, including aiding the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence.

He says he leaked the material to expose wrongdoing by American service members and diplomats.
