USA: One killed, Oregon militia leader Ammon Bundy arrested by FBI amid gunfire

United States, Bend, Oregon
January 27, 2016 at 04:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

Ammon Bundy, the leader of the armed militia occupying the federal-owned Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, was arrested with five other militiamen after a confrontation with the FBI and Oregon State Police on a highway near Burns, Tuesday. One militiaman was killed in the confrontation and Ammon's brother Ryan Bundy sustained minor injuries after being shot by police. Footage shows an air ambulance transporting Ryan Bundy to the St. Charles Harney District Hospital in Bend shortly after the standoff.

FBI agents and Oregon State Police reportedly stopped Bundy and the other militiamen near to the refuge as they made their way to the John Day Senior Centre in neighbouring Grant County. A sixth militiaman was also arrested in a separate incident in John Day. All six arrested men have been charged with conspiracy to impede a federal officer by force, a felony offence.

The armed militia, who refer to themselves as the 'Citizens for Constitutional Freedom,' seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters, located around 50 miles (80km) from Burns, on January 2. The siege came after some 300 people marched through Burns to protest against the prosecution of county ranchers Dwight Hammond Jr. and Steven Hammond, who were detained for setting fire to federal government land.
