Article Photos: Religious sect raided in Germany on abuse fears 1/1

This picture taken Thursday, Sept. 5, shows the village of Klosterzimmern near Deiningen, Germany, which is one of the homes of the "Twelve Tribes" sect. Police say they have raided the Christian religious sect in Bavaria and taken 40 children from them on allegations that they were being physically abused. Bavarian police said Friday, Sept. 6, 2013, that the children of the sect were taken into protective custody the day before as investigators look into allegations that they were being beaten and otherwise physically punished. Authorities say 28 of the children were found at one of the sect’s locations in the town of Deinigen, and 12 others in Woernitz. (AP Photo/dpa, Daniel Karmann)
