Doomsday is not today, cops tell cult members

Jakarta – Indonesian police on Monday evacuated 300 people crammed inside a house in West Java who said they were waiting for the end of the world, police and local media reports said.

The 300 people – from a Christian sect known as Sibuea – insisted the day of reckoning would come at 3pm on Monday, a police official said.

“We already evacuated the churchgoers. So far we have questioned 15 people in the incident,” West Java’s Bale Endah district police chief, Muhammad Pama Daci, told radio El Shinta.

He said no one was hurt in the affair, which occurred near the West Java capital of Bandung, 140km south-east of Jakarta.

It was not clear why the group picked the particular house for the gathering. The evacuation came after local residents complained about the meeting.

“Today, 10 November, is not over yet. There is still time,” one cult member was quoted as saying.
