Zygier Was Negotiating Plea Bargain Before He Died in Jail, Says His Israeli Lawyer

Attorney Avigdor Feldman says he met Zygier - or Prisoner X - before the prisoner apparently committed suicide in his cell at Ayalon Prison; Australian Foreign Ministry backtracks, says informed of incarceration in 2010.

Australian immigrant Ben Zygier, reported to have been recruited by Israel's Mossad spy agency, was charged with grave crimes and was negotiating for a plea bargain before he committed suicide in an Israeli jail, one of his lawyers said on Thursday.
