Oregon protest: 'Those detained will face charges'

US police say they have arrested the leader of an armed militia which has occupied a wildlife refuge in Oregon, with one person killed in a shoot-out.

Ammon Bundy and four others were arrested during a traffic stop. One person was injured. Three others were held in separate incidents.

The militia occupied the refuge this month to support two ranchers jailed for setting fire to federal land.

The BBC's Peter Bowes said that of those detained would face charges.
