Israel may have passed on to Iran secret information gathered by former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst Jonathan Jay Pollard, the Jerusalem Post reported. If true, the allegations "would seriously broaden the scope of the spy scandal and further upset U.S.-Israeli relations," the newspaper said. Pollard, arrested last November, pleaded guilty a week ago to one count of espionage. The Post quoted its sources as saying the "Iranian connection" has sparked interest among U.S. investigators and that there is "a hunting expedition under way against Israel."
