Alien hunters arrested in Nevada
Host: The Evening Standard
At least two alien hunters have been detained at the gate of Area 51 in Nevada.
Reports suggest one man was arrested for urinating at the gate of the once-secret military base, while another was detained for trying to go under it.
Around two million people responded online to the joke Facebook group "Storm Area 51 they can't stop all of us" and the event that was posted.
Thousands were expected to descend on two rural towns, Rachel and Hiko, near the base to see aliens.
Despite Facebook taking down the page, hundreds attended linked events, known as Alienstock last night in each of the two towns as well as in Las Vegas, a two-hour drive away.
