    4 Remaining Oregon Occupiers Surrender

    The four remaining occupiers at an Oregon wildlife refuge surrendered Thursday morning after hours of tense negotiations, bringing an end to the weekslong protest over land rights and personal liberties.
    Federal officials said Jeff Banta, Sean Anderson, Sandy Anderson and David Fry were taken in without incident after FBI agents surrounded the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge overnight.

    The occupation came to an emotionally heated conclusion as Fry, the last to leave, threatened suicide in a phone conversation with self-described "liberty activist" Gavin Seim and conservative radio host KrisAnne Hall that streamed live on YouTube.

    "Unless my grievances are heard I will not surrender," Fry screamed. "Liberty or death."

    All four arrested are expected to face an arraignment before a magistrate judge in Portland on Friday.
