Lawyer arrives to meet Afghan killings suspect
Defense attorney arrives to meet Afghan killings suspect at Kansas military prison
By The Associated Press

FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) ' A Seattle defense attorney has arrived at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and is meeting with an Army staff sergeant who is suspected of carrying out a deadly nighttime attack on two Afghan villages.

Post spokeswoman Rebecca Steed says lawyer John Henry Browne is having his first face-to-face meeting Monday with Robert Bales. The 10-year Army veteran is being held in an isolated cell at the military prison.

The meeting has been described as a privileged visit. Along with medical visits, such meetings are generally more private than others conducted in the prison.

Bales hasn't been charged in the March 11 shootings that left 16 people dead, including nine children. The attacks have endangered relations between the U.S. and Afghanistan and threaten to upend U.S. policy over the decade-old war.
