Hit man for mob indicted in 2015 prison escape

A former contract killer was indicted Wednesday for a brazen – if short-lived – escape from custody at a central Israel hospital one night last November.

Yaron Sankar, 41, was serving two life sentences for a double murder in 2003 when he slipped out of his hospital room at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center at around 10:30 p.m. on November 15 last year. Sankar had been moved to the hospital a little over two weeks earlier after his health declined due to a long hunger strike, which he had launched to protest the conditions of his imprisonment.
