US parole commissioner: Spy Pollard waives hearing
A member of the US Parole Commission says convicted spy Jonathan Pollard has waived a planned parole hearing.


Commissioner Patricia Smoot says the hearing had been scheduled for Tuesday. A parole commission administrator, Stephen Husk, says the hearing was to have been held at the prison in Butner, North Carolina, and that Pollard, who is imprisoned there, would have attended. Husk declined further comment. (AP)
