37 members of extremist cult Lev Tahor leave Bosnia, destination unknown

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Thirty-seven members of the extremist Jewish cult Lev Tahor departed Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday, exiting through the Deleusa border crossing with Montenegro, the Bosnian government said.

According to a statement Friday by the country’s Service for Foreigners’ Affairs, the group members are citizens of the United States, Canada and Guatemala, and were in Bosnia and Herzegovina legally under a 90-day visa-free program that was set to expire in the coming days.

Authorities told local media that they were unaware of the secretive group’s final destination, which the group members had no obligation to disclose as they left legally under their own power.
