Dakota pipeline protest

Dakota pipeline protest: Arrests as year-long occupation ends

Many of the demonstrators ignored an official deadline on Wednesday to leave their protest camp, and some set fire to makeshift wooden structures.

A federal judge has rejected a request by two Native American tribes for an emergency order blocking the pipeline.

The two tribes say the pipeline creates a risk of water pollution and endangers sites they consider sacred.

President Trump has signed an executive order authorising the Dakota Access Pipeline to proceed.
