Tunnel found under a New York synagogue: Watch out for false claims

Police raided an important synagogue and religious complex in Brooklyn, New York on January 8, arresting nine people. The reason? Members of a fringe messianic faction of the Hasidic Jewish community had dug an illegal tunnel beneath several buildings. When an attempt was made to close up the tunnel, the young radicals resisted. Images of the police raid have been shared worldwide and rumours, especially that the tunnel was being used by child trafficking rings, have emerged online.
