JERUSALEM -- Eleven suspected cult members who call themselves the Concerned Christians were ordered to leave Israel Monday.

A statement by the Israeli Interior Ministry released Monday said the cult members believe their deaths will hasten the second coming of Christ.

The ministry said cult members arrived in separate groups in September 1998. They lived in two houses in Mevasseret Zion and Motza, two affluent suburbs on the western approach to Jerusalem.
