(November 16, 2007) -- Cult members holed up in a cave in the southern part of Russia are threatening to blow themselves up, according to local police and Reuters.

The cult members have blocked the cave entrance and are refusing to come out.

Patrolmen are keeping a close eye on the 29 adult and four under-age cult members, who said they'll commit mass suicide, if provoked.

Reuters’ reports cult members believe the world will end next May and their 43-year-old leader has been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Police brought the cult leader to the cave to talk his followers into coming out. However, they refused.
