Imprisoned U.S. Army Whistleblower Chelsea Manning Ends Hunger Strike

Leavenworth, September 14 (RHC)-- Imprisoned U.S. Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning has ended a hunger strike to protest her prison conditions.

Manning ended her hunger strike Tuesday after the Army said she will receive treatment for her gender dysphoria, the American Civil Liberties Union said. 

The 28-year-old Army private announced the hunger strike on Friday, saying she was suffering severe depression due to the Army's refusal to provide her treatment.  The strike was announced after she earlier attempted suicide. 

Manning is serving a 35-year sentence at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, a U.S. military maximum security prison, for passing classified files to WikiLeaks.
