FBI surrounds last four protesters in Oregon standoff

Oregon State Police monitor a checkpoint on Highway 78 approximately 4 miles from the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters near Burns, Oregon on January 28, 2016The FBI surrounded the last protesters holed up at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon amid reports they will surrender on Thursday, suggesting the weeks-long armed siege is approaching a climax. The remaining four said they will peacefully turn themselves in, local media including The Oregonian newspaper reported, after negotiations between the occupiers and FBI agents Wednesday on what was the 40th day of the tense standoff. The siege at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge began on January 2 when protest leader Ammon Bundy and 30 armed followers, most of them from other US states, took over the site to demonstrate against federal land policies.
