FORT MEADE, Md., July 16 (UPI) -- The judge in the trial of WikiLeaks whistle-blower U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning said she'll decide Thursday on his attorneys' request to dismiss some charges.

The judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, said Monday she will rule in dismissing seven charges, including aiding the enemy through the alleged massive release of data to WikiLeaks, The New York Times reported.

Defense attorneys had argued prosecutors did not show sufficient evidence Manning had "actual knowledge" the information he released would make its way into enemy hands.

Prosecutors argue Manning's military training had taught him al-Qaida and other terror groups could gain access to the files.
