A US military judge sentenced Army Pfc. Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison Wednesday for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. He was also given a dishonorable discharge from the military.

Manning, 25, has admitted to leaking the classified material, the largest amount of such information leaked in US history, including thousands of war logs about US operations in Iraq and Afghanistan while he worked as an intelligence analyst at a forward operating base in Iraq.

Included in the 700,000 files leaked by Manning was a video of a 2007 US helicopter attack in Baghdad that reportedly killed a dozen civilians including a Reuters cameraman and his driver.

“I’m sorry I hurt people. I’m sorry that I hurt the United States,” Manning told military judge Col. Denise Lind last week during the sentencing hearing at Fort Meade, Maryland.
