VIDEO: Arrests made after 11 children found living in makeshift compound

Eleven children, aged from one to 15, were rescued in the US state of New Mexico after officers raided a makeshift compound occupied by armed "extremists".

Two men were arrested after police found them and the children in what one officer called "the saddest living conditions and poverty I have seen".

The discovery came as part of an operation connected to a search for an abducted three-year-old, according to Taos County sheriff's office.
