Yeltsin sacks his top aides

PRESIDENT Boris Yeltsin roused himself from his sick-bed for three hours yesterday, fired four top aides, then returned to hospital where he is recuperating from pneumonia, the Kremlin said. The sacked men, the presidential chief of staff Valentin Yumashev and three of his deputies, included officials who had commented on Mr Yeltsin's health.
