Manning in jail again after refusing to testify

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning was taken into custody again after being released last week, as she stood by her refusal to testify before a grand jury. Manning was found in contempt of court and could spend up to 18 months in jail. She will also be fined for each day after spending 30 days behind bars.

"I will never agree to testify before this or any other grand jury. The government knows I cannot be coerced," Manning said. The exact case for which the grand jury has been convened is unknown, it is believed to be related to WikiLeaks.
