New Mexico compound littered with ammunition, dirty diapers

Children were brought to New Mexico compound for weapons training,...

In November 2009, Wahhaj was one of many Muslim leaders who met with NY mayor Michael Bloomberg at City Hall. He may have been "high-strung", but the father never believed his son was extreme enough to kill anyone.

His account dovetailed with a chronology given earlier in the week by Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe, who said he obtained a search warrant for the compound after police in Georgia got a plea about starvation from someone in the compound and shared it with his investigators. "This doesn't seem like them", Wahhaj said. Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not feel there was probable cause to search the property.

The imam says he's shocked his son and two of his other children were involved.

Prosecutors also have accused the adults in court documents of training children to use firearms in preparation for future school shootings, although no charges have been filed in response to the accusation that came from a new foster parent of one of the 11 children removed from the compound. All five are being jailed without bail in New Mexico. Morten was also arrested and charged with harboring a fugitive. He was being sought in Georgia in the disappearance of his young son.

All five adults arrested on August 3 are now being held without bond, and an investigation is ongoing into what exactly happened at the New Mexico compound, where 16 people were living in what Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe called the "saddest living conditions and poverty I have seen".

In the Facebook video, mosque spokesman Ali Abdul-Karim Judan asked Wahhaj to comment on how media is characterizing him, including references to the World Trade Center bombing. Authorities said the father at some point told his wife he wanted to perform an exorcism on the boy, who suffers seizures and requires constant attention because of a lack of oxygen and blood flow at birth.

The elder Wahhaj said he did not know anything about his son wanting to perform an exorcism on the boy.

"I'm very concerned with the condition of my grandchildren", he said.

On Monday, authorities returned with new intelligence to retrieve the body of a small boy - possibly the missing and severely disabled Georgia boy Abdul-ghani Wahhaj.

The settlement sprung up on the outskirts of tiny Amalia, New Mexico, last winter - as a manhunt unfolded for the father of a 3-year-old boy abducted from Georgia.

14 dead in attempted Taliban city assault
There was no confirmed word on casualties. "We have not witnessed such a large scale attack by the Taliban before", said Andar. Local television station 1TV says the number of fatalities has risen to more than 100, but there is no official confirmation.

The boy was not among the 11 children rescued, but child remains were found at the compound and have yet to be identified.

His son, said by authorities to have been heavily armed when arrested, was taken into custody with his brother-in-law, Lucas Morton.

The son, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, also was charged with custodial interference in the alleged abduction of his 3-year-old son, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, last December from the Atlanta home of the child's mother.

"Of course this is a hard time for her", Rashid said of the mother.

Jany Leveille makes her first appearance in New Mexico state district court to plead not guilty to charges of child abuse in Taos, New Mexico, August 8, 2018. She and Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the imam's son, had been married nearly 14 years.

Badger said he had spotted Wahhaj, 40, at the end of January, as well as his son.

The elder Siraj Wahhaj echoed her call for justice for his grandson.

"Whoever is responsible, then that person should be held accountable", Mr Wahhaj said. Morton is accompanied by public defense attorneys, Greg Dawkins, left, and Aleks Kostich, right.

The imam describe his family as large and tight-knit, adding that it was out of character for his children to have broken off direct contact with them since family ties are important in the Muslim faith.

"To me, it's obviously something happened, some mental disorder or something, I don't know what it is". It's this leader, it's that leader, he said, referring to the Islamic Circle of North America, the Muslim American Society and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, groups formed in the U.S.by the Muslim Brotherhood that were named as co-conspirator in a plot to fund Hamas.
