News in Brief

Diplomats Expelled OTTAWA (Reuters) -- Canada and Russia have expelled two of each other's diplomats for allegedly engaging in activities inconsistent with their status, a term that is short-hand for spying, officials said Saturday. Canadian Foreign Ministry spokesman Reynald Doiron said Russia had earlier in the week ordered two Canadian diplomats to leave Moscow, but he denied that they had been spying. Moscow reacted after Ottawa decided a few weeks ago to insist on the withdrawal of two Russian diplomats who had ""been involved in activities in Canada inconsistent with their diplomatic status,"" Doiron said. Officer Dismissed MOSCOW (AP) -- The commander of an elite military division had been dismissed after a brief desertion by 16 soldiers protesting abuses, a top general said. Sixteen unarmed soldiers of the 2nd Taman Guards Motorized Rifle Division left their base Tuesday after signing a joint letter of protest against abuses by their commander.
