Polygamy Backed

MOSCOW -- The leader of Bashkortostan lent his support Thursday to the head of Ingushetia who wants to allow polygamy in a predominantly Moslem region, Interfax reported.

"Russia is a multinational country, and every nation has its own ways and traditions,'' Bashkir President Murtaza Rakhimov said. "They cannot be the same for all nations, and this should be taken into consideration and respected.''
