Court indicts three suspects in Jerusalem cult

The three central defendants in an Orthodox Jerusalem cult were indicted in the Jerusalem District Court on Wednesday, in a case of what police and social workers have called the worst abuse they have seen in decades.
Nine members of the cult, a well-known polygamous Breslav family based in Jerusalem, were arrested last week. Three men were taken into custody, and six women, along with 15 children, were placed in separate shelters across the country.
The media gag order placed on the story was partially lifted on Tuesday, but many details, such as the identity of the family and the exact nature of the abuse, are still under a blackout.
