Islamic Sect Found Living Underground

Russian investigators have discovered 70 members of an Islamist sect living in an eight-story underground bunker near the city of Kazan. It's believed that the members have been below ground for a decade, including 20 children, many of whom have never been exposed to sunlight. The group is called the Fayzarahmanist sect, and they're followers of a self-declared prophet who tried to create his own independent Islamic state in the '70s. A criminal investigation has been opened into the unusual community, but no arrests have been made.
