Breaking and developing news on the occupation of the Oregon wildlife refuge:
Ammon and Ryan Bundy, the brothers leading anti-government protesters occupying Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, and several other people were arrested Tuesday in a confrontation with authorities, the FBI said. One person was dead, the FBI said.
