Eleven children in US rescued from 'extremists' at 'filthy' hideout

Eleven children in US rescued from 'extremists' at 'filthy' hideoutFive people have been arrested in New Mexico after police raided a remote desert encampment and found 11 children living among potential Muslim extremists in “filthy” conditions. The three women – mothers of the 11 children aged between one and 15 – and two men were all charged with child abuse. One of the men, Siraj Wahhaj, 39, was wanted in his home state of Georgia for questioning over the disappearance of his three-year-old son, Abdul. Both father and son were last seen in December, when Wahhaj told his wife, Hakima Ramzi, that he was taking the boy to the park.

Wahhaj’s relatives, including his father, an imam at a mosque in Brooklyn, New York, launched a social media campaign to try and find the missing boy. The toddler was not found in Friday’s raid, however, which was months in the making. Police finally went in after the sheriff in Taos, New Mexico, was forwarded a note from someone on the property, given to Georgia police, which read: “we are starving and need food and water.” Jerry Hogrefe, sheriff of Taos County, said: “I absolutely knew that we couldn’t wait on another agency to step up, and we had to go check this out as soon as possible.” The sheriff described planning “a tactical approach for our own safety because we had learned the occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief.” Relatives’ social media accounts show the Wahhaj family to be devout, but with no evidence of extremist beliefs.

The men at first refused to follow verbal direction, police said, during Friday’s day-long operation. The women – Jany Leveille, 35, believed to be Morten’s wife; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38; and Subhannah Wahhaj, a 35-year-old author of Muslim self-help books – gave themselves up.

Mr Hogrefe told ABC News the children were hungry, thirsty and filthy. “I’ve been a cop for 30 years. I’ve never seen anything like this. Unbelievable,” he said. Police described the compound as a small underground trailer covered by plastic, with no running water or electricity “They were skinny, their ribs showed, they were in very poor hygiene and very scared,” he said.

The children were taken away for medical tests.  Morten was additionally charged with harbouring a fugitive and Wahhaj was booked without bond on his Georgia warrant for child abduction. Sherry Jarrell, an occupational therapist who lives on a 70-acre property not far from where the arrests were made on Friday said the area is beautiful, but residents don’t always know who their neighbours are. “It’s a great place,” she told Taos News. “But strange people live out on the mesa. People that are trying to get away from things.”
