PRINCETON, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — The FBI has announced that a press conference will be held at the Harney County Chamber of Commerce and has let press enter the refuge after the standoff has come to an abrupt end Tuesday afternoon.
In FBI’s release about the press conference, they refer to the refuge as an “on-going situation” #Oregonstandoff

The scene is reported to be semi-secure but volatile.
All of this follows a massive raid by law enforcement which took place around p.m. local time.
“Eleven people including the protest leader have been arrested since Tuesday when one of the group was shot dead in a bloody twist to the three-week occupation involving ranchers angry over federal land management policies,” AP reports.
Just spoke with David Fry, who is still at Malheur. 4 ppl inside.”We kind of all agreed that it’s probably better to die than go to prison.”

The following report from Infowars is great and really tells the behind the scenes truth of what really took place over the past weeks.
It is also important to note that after Intellihub obtained an original interview early on with Ryan Bundy, one of the refuge occupiers, our reports were later impeded by a character on the ground who made sure our press line to Bundy was permanently closed.
