Jonathan Pollard was jailed for life for passing classified documents to Israel

Former US navy analyst Jonathan Pollard, jailed for life in 1987 for passing classified information to Israel, has been released.

The 61-year-old was freed on Friday morning, ending one of the longest-running and most contentious issues between the US and Israel.

Mr Pollard’s parole conditions mean he must remain in the US for five years.

Repeated Israeli appeals over the years for the US to show clemency towards Mr Pollard were rejected.
