A band of Yiddish-style musicians from Boston has been expelled from the Soviet Union after meeting and holding an impromptu concert with human rights activists in Soviet Georgia. The U.S. Embassy in Moscow said the unidentified four-member band departed without being given a reason for the expulsion. An embassy spokesman said the ouster appeared to be linked to the meeting with the Georgian dissidents.
