Convicted spy Jonathan Pollard was taken back to prison after being released from the hospital where he was admitted into several days ago following deterioration in his health. Following his release, Pollard held a short phone conversation with his wife Esther Pollard. According to her, Pollard sounded very weak and had some trouble speaking.
Pollard's wife informed him of President Shimon Peres' request from the White House to grant him clemency. "He asked me to personally thank the president and ask him not to give up," she said. (Aviel Magnezi)
