Soviet Jewish dissident Anatoly Shcharansky has been sentenced to a new six-month term in a Soviet labor camp jail, his wife, Avital, said in Jerusalem. She said she recently heard from relatives in Moscow that her husband was sentenced in October to a new jail term in the Ural Mountains labor camp because he staged a hunger strike to protest not receiving his mail. Shcharansky, 38, was sentenced in 1977 to three years in prison and 10 years in a labor camp on charges of spying for the United States.
