BURNS, Ore. (AP) - The last four people to occupy a national wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon say they're giving themselves up to authorities this morning.

Last night, law officers surrounded the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in a tense standoff, and occupier David Fry sounded increasingly unraveled.

The group, led by Ammon Bundy, seized the refuge on Jan. 2 to oppose federal land-use policies.

But Bundy has been behind bars, and his father was taken into custody last night.
