Inside the New Mexico complex where a Muslim extremist was hiding

The shovels remain in a hole that was being dug to access the tunnel in the New Mexico complex, where on Friday 11 hungry children and five adults were found.

The interior of the New Mexico complex where a Muslim extremist kept 11 children was revealed for the first time since his arrest last Friday.

Dirty scenes from the interior of the ramshackle site, near Amalia, showed the trailers covered with transparent tarpaulin and what appeared to be a collection of tents, held shakily by plywood pillars, from above.

Under it and within the few trailers are piles of garbage, dusty furniture and discarded toys.

One of the impromptu rooms had a queen-sized bed, presumably for two of the adults to sleep, while the trailer that housed the children was built almost underground.

The family also started digging a tunnel in the desert, but it is not clear why they used it.

The site was explored by Today Friday once the police finished gathering evidence.

The AR-15 of Wahhaj with rounds of ammunition next to him is in the photo. The police did not recover it, they said, because they had to follow the state law that prohibits collecting evidence unless it is in sight. They were also limited by their search order, they said

Surprisingly, the AR-15 rifle and the four pistols that Siraj Wahhaj had when the county sheriffs finally broke into the complex last Friday have been left behind.

There is also a video camera, two cell phones, a laptop and a GoPro camera that were found by the owner of the neighboring land, Jason Badger.

He also found Wahhaj's passport, which he said shows that he had been in Saudi Arabia at some time.

The authorities have not eliminated as much evidence as they could have expected because they are limited to the restrictions of their search warrant which, according to the laws of the State of New Mexico, means that they can only take what is on the site.

The FBI, which has been monitoring the complex for months, refuses to comment on the case.

There were vehicles on the site along with bales of hay and dozens of rubber tires installed, it is believed, near a practice shooting area where Wahhaj was supposedly teaching the children in preparation for school shootings.

The family arrived there in December after Wahhaj abducted Georgia, his three-year-old disabled son.

Badger, who had been trying to evict the family, said Friday that he knew the boy was there and contacted the police to say it, but nothing was done.

"An innocent child who is sick and here suffers, suffers," he said of the little boy.

Police have yet to confirm that the remains of a child found on the site are AG, but the boy's grandfather, the controversial Imam Wahhaj Siraj, 68, told reporters on Thursday that it was him.

Jason Badger, owner of the land on the same site, said he found Wahhaj's passport after the police left. Many of the family's possessions were simply left on the premises by the police

Imam Sirah has also claimed that it was he who received the message that the children needed food and were starving.

"We've been meeting with the police since the first day," he said, speaking near his Brooklyn mosque on Thursday.

The message, he said, was sent by one of his daughters to a man in Georgia who transmitted it to him.

When he got it, he told the man to find where to send the food and gave the address to the authorities.

& # 39; What I do? I said, "find out where to send the food." That's why the police came in, because of the information we gave them, "he said.

Their story does not align with the police time line of events that said they knew the family was in the complex but could not move to the site because they were not sure AG was inside.

He described his son as "tall" and "strange", but said he had no knowledge of any sinister plot form.

His wife Jany Leveille, 35, is also in custody, as is Subhanah's husband, Lucas Morton.

Morton's father has spoken out to defend him and claims that the accusations against adults are based on Islamophobic prejudices.

He told Today: "He is not that character. I think it's just propaganda and lies, you know the usual lies that people put on Muslims, "he said.

When the children were found last Friday, they had not eaten for days and their bones protruded, according to the authorities.

There was no running water in the complex and the only food that appeared to be potatoes and a box of rice.

The five adults remain behind bars on charges of child abuse.
