Tapes catch Amir smuggling sperm

Yigal Amir suffered a legal setback Wednesday after security tapes refuted his claim that no evidence existed to document his March attempt to smuggle his sperm out of the Ayalon Prison, where he is serving his life sentence for the murder of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. After Amir had denied participating in the smuggling attempt, the Prisons Authority showed him tapes from jail security cameras that clearly documented the incident. Upon seeing the tapes, Amir withdrew his request for the second hearing.
