Two Argentine army colonels and three captains involved in two rebellions against former President Raul Alfonsin were stripped of their rank and discharged from the army. The measures were the first sanctions applied against military rebel leaders by the administration of President Carlos Saul Menem, Alfonsin's successor. The army said the officers included Lt. Col. Aldo Rico, who led uprisings in April, 1987, and January, 1988.
