Mexican police raid ‘Jewish Taliban’ cult compound, arrest 26

Mexican police have raided a compound of the extremist Lev Tahor cult along the border with Guatemala, rescuing, among others, a toddler whose father had escaped the cult years ago.

Twenty-six cult members, including its leader Menachem Endel Alter, were arrested in the raid, which took place over the weekend in the southern Mexican city of Tapachula.

The cult members have been involved in organized crime including human trafficking, rape and drug trafficking, among other serious offenses.
