Eight hard-line Soviet Communists have been named as instigators of the plot to overthrow Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev. At least five have been arrested, one killed himself, one is hospitalized under guard, and there are arrest warrants for several others. Gorbachev says there will be no "witch-hunt" as in historic Soviet purges, but said there must be no danger of repeating the coup attempt.
The Evening Sun wants to know what punishment you think the surviving coup leaders should face. You can register your opinion with SUNDIAL.
