An emergency official in Russia says another 14 members of a doomsday cult have come out of a cave where they've been holed up.

Seven other cult members came out three days ago.

Thirty-five people entered the cave in a region southeast of Moscow in early November to await the end of the world, which they say will happen in May. They told authorities they would detonate gas canisters if police tried to remove them.

A regional emergency spokesman says the 14 who emerged Tuesday are in satisfactory condition.

Melting snow has caused part of the cave to collapse, leading to fears that the remaining cult members, including four young children, could be killed.
