Children freed from living in underground hive: Russian police find 27 children in rogue Muslim leader’s catacomb ‘caliphate’
Russian police recently freed 27 children and 38 adults living in an underground, eight-story compound constructed by a rogue Muslim leader who thought God wanted him to build his own caliphate beneath the earth.
Faizrakhman Satarov, the 83-year-old self-proclaimed prophet, began digging under a house on a 7.500-square-foot lot in a suburb of the large regional city of Kazan roughly ten years ago, and soon created a web of tiny cells with no light, heating, or ventilation, according to the Associated Press.
The children — many of whom were born in the ‘hive’ — were kept underground for most of their lives and not permitted to attend school or visit doctors, officials told the newswire.
