Law enforcement officials on Friday were sweeping a wildlife refuge in Oregon for possible live explosives and evidence, a day after the last holdouts in a protest over federal control of Western land surrendered, ending a six-week armed standoff. Federal authorities said the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon would remain closed for several weeks, as agents secured what was now considered a crime scene and scoured it for fugitives or explosives. After their surrender on Thursday, protesters told authorities they left behind booby traps but did not say whether the trip wires and other devices would trigger explosions, a law enforcement official told Reuters.
