Three teenagers have been taken from a compound in New Mexico, United States after it was alleged that minors in the compond, called the Lord Our Righteousness Church were being abused.

A person from the compound said, "Recently representatives from CYFD [Children Youth and Family Department of New Mexico] came to our land and kidnapped three teenagers who are part of our family here." He continued, " I call it an abduction because that is how God views it. There were no moral grounds for them to be taken."
