Convicted spy for Israel Jonathan Pollard was taken to a civilian hospital to undergo what was described in reports as "urgent" surgery.

Pollard was removed Tuesday from the federal prison in Butner, N.C., for the surgery, according to Israeli news sites. The prison would not confirm that Pollard had been taken to a hospital.

Pollard has been in poor health, including a deterioration of his kidney problems. His wife, Esther, had come from Israel to North Carolina to visit him before the surgery.
