Police found a group of heavily armed men on a highway in Massachusetts, USA. They were wearing military uniforms, carrying rifles and pistols, and said they were on their way to Maine for training.
When the police saw two cars driving with emergency lights on, the group was spotted. The police said they refused to surrender or put down their weapons, and then ran towards a forest. Two men were arrested there.
A few hours later, seven more people were arrested. It is not clear whether more people are at large.
A man who doesn’t understand the law
According to the police in that state in the northeastern United States, this is a group of people who “do not recognize our laws.” As a result of this discovery, part of a major highway has been closed. As a precaution, people in some places have to stay indoors. According to the police, the organization did not make any threats, but they are dangerous.
It is not clear which group these people belong to. American media reported that these people were part of a militia who claimed to be “American Armed Forces of the Moors,” but the police did not confirm this. A police spokesman said: “The leaders of the organization want to let us know that they are not anti-government.”
