Mexican authorities began Saturday moving children out of the shelter where investigators say hundreds of minors were kept in squalid conditions and subjected to physical and sexual abuse. Of the shelter's more than 400 children, 48 were moved to the city of Guadalajara and were placed in the custody of the federal agency overseeing child welfare issues.
