The US military will begin treatment for US document leaker Chelsea Manning for her gender-identity condition, according to BBC News.

Defence secretary Chuck Hagel has approved gender treatment for Pte First Class Manning, a native of Crescent, Okla., who was formerly known as Bradley.



The move came after the bureau of prisons rejected the Army's request to transfer her from a military facility, BBC News reports.
