Federal agents conducted raids over the weekend in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio and arrested at least seven people, according to CNN. While charges against those arrested won't be unsealed until Monday, a Michigan militia leader says at least one of the targets of the raids was a Christian militia group called Hutaree, an organization that claims on their website to be "preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive." A law-enforcement official told CNN the arrests are not "related to any terrorist plot." [AP, CNN]
