One more quits Waco compound

A man left the besieged compound of the Branch Davidians sect, becoming the first person to come out of the rural fortress in nearly two weeks, AP reports from Waco. Louis Anthony Alaniz, 24, sneaked past federal agents and into the compound on 24 March and he walked out on Saturday wearing a T- shirt that read 'David Koresh, God'. He was taken to jail.
