Notesnews - In a characteristic act of political theatre, President Yeltsin said yesterday that he had changed his mind and would attend the funeral today of the last Tsar. He hopes to turn a low key ceremony into an act of national reconciliation. Mr Yeltsin had indicated that he would stay away after the Russian Orthodox Church doubted that the remains of the imperial family, murdered 80 years ago and dug up in 1991 were genuine.
