New Mexico compound gang arrested by FBI – BBC News

Five residents of a site where police found firearms and starving children face conspiracy charges.

Child abuse charges against the five were dismissed after a 10-day limit for a hearing was missed by prosecutors.

They will now remain in custody pending a hearing in federal court on Tuesday.

The charges include unlawful possession of firearms by an illegal immigrant, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, and aiding and abetting in the committing of an offence, the FBI said in a statement on Friday.
