WASHINGTON — The U.S. Army says the intelligence analyst suspected of illegally passing government secrets to the WikiLeaks website has been found competent to stand trial.

Army spokesman Gary Tallman says a panel of experts completed its evaluation of Pfc. Bradley Manning's mental fitness on April 22, and informed Army officials Friday of the conclusion. Tallman says no date has been set yet for the trial.

Manning is suspected of obtaining hundreds of thousands of classified documents while serving in Iraq and providing them to the website. He faces about two dozen charges, including aiding the enemy. That charge can bring the death penalty or life in prison.

Manning was transferred Wednesday to an Army prison in Kansas. He passed a psychiatric evaluation there, allowing him to live alongside other inmates.
