Fleeing Lev Tahor sect members returned to Canada

Nine members of the fringe Haredi Orthodox Lev Tahor sect who fled Canada last week were returned to the country.

On Saturday night, Toronto-area police and children’s aid officials greeted the plane carrying three Lev Tahor adults and six children from Trinidad and Tobago. The children were placed in the custody of Chatham-Kent Children’s Services, located about a three-hour drive southwest of Toronto, while border agents processed the adults, according to the Toronto Star.
