PARIS (AP) - One of Roman Polanski's lawyers says the jailed filmmaker is undergoing medical tests, though his current condition "is not of exceptional gravity."
Herve Temime told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that after Saturday's tests Polanski would return to the Swiss prison where he is being held on a U.S. arrest warrant for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
The Paris-based lawyer declined to say what kind of exams Polanski had undergone or where they were administered.
Swiss tabloid newspaper Blick printed pictures Saturday of a van it said had whisked the director from the prison the northeastern city of Winterthur to an unnamed Zurich hospital.
Polanski has been in custody since late September.
