Convicted Nazi collaborator Maurice Papon was rushed from prison to a hospital after suffering from heart trouble, according to the French Justice Ministry. Papon, 89, who has a history of cardiac illness, entered a hospital Wednesday night after complaining of a rapid heartbeat. He has been in jail since October, when he began serving a 10-year sentence for crimes against humanity. Papon is seeking a presidential pardon on medical grounds.
