A nonprofit advocacy group that supports former death-row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal reported that he had been hospitalized Monday afternoon.
Prison Radio, which distributes recordings made by Abu-Jamal in prison, said the 60-year-old had been transported from the State Correctional Institution at Mahanoy in Schuylkill County at 1 p.m. to the intensive care unit at Schuylkill Medical Center.
