About 100 members of a Taiwanese cult have left for a meeting in Dallas, Texas, where officials fear they plan to commit mass suicide. They included many children, because the God Saves the Earth Flying Saucer Foundation cult encourages entire families to kill themselves so that their bodies could be picked up by flying saucers, officials and newspapers said .

The Foreign Ministry said the Taiwanese government had approached the FBI to ensure the safety of the cult members, who left Taiwan recently. The cult has recruited some 200 Taiwanese members in the past few years.
