The men of a polygamous West Texas commune will cooperate with court-mandated DNA testing.

That's the promise of three men from the commune, which state officials raided earlier this month after a report of forced marriages and sexual abuse of underage girls by older men.
In an interview aired on CBS's "Early Show" Monday, they said they'd do whatever's needed to get the return of 416 children the state took from them.
