Oregon standoff: Last holdout surrenders
The final holdout in a nearly six-week armed occupation of a rural Oregon wildlife refuge surrendered Thursday, bringing an end to the dramatic showdown between anti-federal militants and FBI agents. “No one was injured, and no shots were fired,” the FBI said in a statement after the last of four remaining holdouts at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was taken into custody. The four militants were scheduled to be arraigned in U.S. District Court in Portland on Friday.
