Photo of Sakharovs proves they're reunited, relative says

The stepdaughter of Soviet dissident Andrei Sakharov said Saturday she received a photo on Friday of her mother, Yelena Bonner, and Mr. Sakharov.

Tatiana Yankelevich said the photo was the first she had received from her mother since March, and proves that Bonner has been reunited with Sakharov.
