The FBI surrounded the last protesters holed up at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon amid reports they will surrender Thursday, suggesting the weeks-long armed siege is approaching a climax.The siege at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge began on January 2 when protest leader Ammon Bundy and 30 armed followers, most of them from other US states, took over the site to demonstrate against federal land policies.The FBI said that it moved in after one of the remaining occupiers drove an all-terrain vehicle beyond the makeshift barricades set up by the protesters.The Oregonian said that the FBI told the occupiers that they would not escalate the situation in what was left of Wednesday, but were not leaving the scene either.
