Four members of the Japanese Red Army, a shadowy ultra-leftist group accused of terrorist attacks in the 1970s, reportedly were on their way back to Japan on Friday after Lebanon denied them asylum. Lebanon had refused to extradite the three men and a woman to Japan, so it deported them to Jordan. But once in Amman, they were handed over to Japanese diplomats, who took them on a private plane back to Japan, diplomats in the Jordanian capital said.

The Kremlin was wrong to send in troops to put down the virtual civil war between Azerbaijan and Armenia, maverick Soviet politician Boris N. Yeltsin said over the weekend.
