6 Pentecostalists leave US Embassy and Moscow

Six members of two Pentecostalist families living in refuge at the United States Embassy here left to fly back home to Siberia. A member of the group said they were returning to Chernogorsk, their Siberian hometown, where they would apply for exit visas to emigrate and join Lidiya Vashchenko in Israel. She is the only one of the group given permission to leave the country. ''This is the biggest risk of our lives we are taking,'' said her mother, Avgustina, before leaving the embassy for home.
