Oregon standoff holdouts willing to leave if no arrests
BURNS - A video posted by the holdouts occupying an Oregon wildlife refuge says the remaining five members of the armed group will leave if none of them face arrest.
The statement was posted early Thursday to the YouTube channel "DefendYourBase," which the group has been using to give live updates from Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. David Fry has made frequent posts, but no face was visible in the video.
It shows a campfire while a man says authorities told the group that "out of five people left here, four of us are allowed to leave."
The video says the FBI told them that one of the remaining occupiers faces a federal felony charge. The video says "we are willing to stay here" unless authorities agree to drop it.
The FBI has established checkpoints around the refuge. Eleven other people have been arrested in connection to the standoff.
