Cult Leader Insane

The leader of a doomsday sect in the Penza region has been ruled insane.

Pyotr Kuznetsov, leader of an Orthodox splinter group that has been holed up in a cave since November, was found insane following a psychiatric evaluation, Interfax reported Wednesday.

The finding would free him from criminal responsibility for his actions, a law enforcement source said, RIA-Novosti reported.
