    A federal grand jury has indicted several people involved in the anti-government protest at an Oregon wildlife sanctuary, where a handful of holdouts continued to occupy the site overnight Wednesday, NBC News reported.

    The armed occupation, which began Jan. 2 at the Malheur National Wildlife Center, lost its momentum last week after its leaders, brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, were arrested along with 9 others during a traffic stop. Another occupier, Robert LaVoy Finicum, was fatally shot by authorities in the same incident.

    Federal prosecutor Geoff Barrow told the AP on Wednesday that the indictment involves the people arrested so far "and others," perhaps a reference to the four people who have stayed put at the federal refuge — despite Ammon Bundy's calls for them to leave.
