Members of the Lev Tahor Jewish sect arrested in Mexico

Oaxaca.-Mexican authorities arrested members of the Lev Tahor Jewish sect in a raid after which a three-year-old boy was returned to his father who had fled the community, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced Tuesday.

The raid occurred on Friday "after the Mexican police collected incriminating evidence against several people from the sect on suspicion of drug trafficking, rape and other crimes," the Israeli ministry said in a statement.
