HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Montana Gov. Steve Bullock has ordered all flags flown in the state to fly at half-staff to honor the victims of an attack on police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Bullock’s order says the officers who died in Sunday’s attacks “made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty to protect their citizens.”

The flags will be lowered until Friday.

Three officers died Sunday in what police call an ambush by a gunman who also died. The three are among 10 law enforcement officers killed around the country by attackers over a 10-day span.
