Oregon stand-off: Wildlife refuge occupiers in shock acquittal


Recommended Posts

Seven leaders of an armed militia who led a 41-day stand-off at a US federal wildlife refuge in Oregon have been cleared of the charges against them.


The surprise verdict acquitted them of conspiracy and firearms offences.


A lawyer for one of the leaders, Ammon Bundy, was tackled to the ground by US marshals after shouting at the judge.
