Alleged child-abusing cult leader Elior Chen is due to be extradited to Israel from Brazil on Tuesday evening, after landing at Ben-Gurion Airport on Wednesday. Chen, a self-styled rabbi, allegedly influenced members of his flock to abuse their children in order to "correct their corrupt souls." His alleged crimes became public after two brothers, one three years old and the other four-and-a-half, were rushed to hospital on March 12, 2008 after suffering from abuse. The younger child suffered severe brain damage and has not recovered. Dan Izenberg contributed to this report
