The Committee to Free Jonathan Pollard reported Saturday that he collapsed
in prison over the weekend and had to be hospitalized.

Pollard, 58, who is serving a life sentence for espionage, has reportedly
been experiencing pain for several weeks, but it is still unknown whether it
was the cause for his hospitalization.

No word has been given as to his condition. His wife, Ester, has been
updated on his condition. She said she was deeply concerned for her husband
and asked the public to pray for his recovery.

The ailing spy, whose health has been steadily deteriorating over the past
few years, has been hospitalized several times in the past and underwent
surgery in prison in August 2011.

Many top US officials, including former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
and former CIA Chief James Woolsey, have voiced their support for Pollard's
release, saying that his health as well as "the passage of time" in events
related to his case now enable the administration to pardon him.

Israel has been campaigning for pollard's release, but so far to no avail.
