Israeli officials, who are increasingly concerned that the countdown to 2000 will bring a number of Christian extremists to the Holy Land, identified those in custody as members of an American cult known as Concerned Christians.

The leader of a doomsday cult who predicted the destruction of Denver last weekend has vanished along with about 50 of his followers, raising fears that they are bent on mass suicide, officials and observers said. Followers of Monte Kim Miller's group, Concerned Christians, have sold their belongings and abandoned their homes. Cult watchers believe that the group may be headed to Jerusalem because of Miller's belief that he would die there in December 1999 and be resurrected three days later.
