MOSCOW — Six senior Communist Party members have been fired in the Soviet republic of Uzbekistan, where a rash of corruption-related dismissals has already been reported over the last year.

According to Friday's edition of the regional party daily Pravda Vostoka (Pravda of the East), which reached Moscow on Tuesday, five members of the republic's Central Committee were fired for "misdeeds and actions incompatible with their position."

On Monday, the official news agency Tass said another regional chief was also removed for "shortcomings in his work" after less than four years in the job. He was replaced by a party official brought in especially from Leningrad.
