— Army Pfc. Lynndie England, who appeared in Abu Ghraib prison photographs pointing at Iraqi prisoners' genitals, will face a military court hearing next month, her lawyer said Friday.

Army officials scheduled the hearing for June 21-25 at Fort Bragg, said Rose Mary Zapor of Denver, one of England's civilian defense lawyers. A spokesman for the XVIII Airborne Corps on Friday could not confirm the date or offer details.
