The True End Of The World

MOSCOW (AFP) — The final members of a Russian doomsday cult on Friday quit the cave where they had been waiting six months for the end of the world after the stench of rotting corpses threatened them with intoxication, Interfax reported.

Interfax quoted local official Vladimir Provotorov saying that they decided to leave because there was "a real threat of poisoning from toxic corpse fumes" of two deceased cult members rotting in the cave.

The sect members were part of an ultra-Orthodox splinter group led by bearded guru Pyotr Kuznetsov, who instructed them to go underground last November in wait for the world's end.
