Four of the remaining Oregon occupiers holed up in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge claim the FBI has somehow blocked their cell phones from placing outgoing calls, and incoming calls are being rerouted to the FBI.
One of the holdouts, David Fry, says he and three others hunkered down in the refuge, can no longer place outbound calls. Supporters who attempt to call Fry end up reaching the FBI instead. The internet, which the militia had been using for live video streaming, has also been interrupted.
At least 150 militia members, led by three sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, took control of the federal building in eastern Oregon early in January.
Militia spokesman LaVoy Finicum was shot and killed by the FBI during a traffic stop gone wrong in Oregon last Tuesday evening. Finicum was seen on aerial video twice reaching for his waistband before the FBI was forced to fire on him.
