Former U.S. Army soldier Chelsea Manning was hospitalized Tuesday, officials said.
CNN, citing an anonymous source, reported that the hospitalization may have been the result of a suicide attempt. American Civil Liberties Union attorney Chase Strangio wrote on Twitter that Manning’s medical condition was not immediately available, according to Reuters.
“Reports of Chelsea’s suicide attempt are unconfirmed,” Strangio wrote. “We just know that she was taken to the hospital & are trying to learn more.”
Army officials are expected to release a statement about Manning’s condition soon, reports Reuters.
Manning, 28, is serving a 35-year prison sentence for her role in the largest leak of classified material in U.S. history. A 2013 military court convicted her of leaking some 700,000 documents, videos, diplomatic cables and battlefield accounts to Wikileaks.
