American Stricken; Spy Trial Adjourned

November 01, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Jailed U.S. businessman Edmond D. Pope's espionage trial was adjourned until Thursday after he doubled over in pain in a suspect's cage during a break in his proceedings. Prison doctors said he had rheumatic inflammation of the back and hip joints, but his family fears his bone cancer has returned. Pope, 54, is charged with illegally trying to buy classified plans for a high-speed torpedo.
