Riot police move in on N Dakota pipeline protesters

"Non-lethal" shotgun bean bag rounds and pepper spray were being used to subdue protesters at a North Dakota camp, the Associated Press quoted a state official as saying.

Two helicopters and a fixed-wing aeroplane flew overhead as officials made warnings over a loudspeaker.

The $3.7bn (£2.8bn) Dakota Access pipeline has prompted huge protests.

Native Americans have halted its construction in North Dakota. The pipeline will run 1,168 miles (1,870km) through Iowa, Illinois, and North and South Dakota.

Second night of violence in Charlotte amid protests over police shooting

One protester is in a critical condition after a "civilian on civilian" incident, the city said.

Riot police have lined the streets to face off against hundreds of protesters and tear gas has been fired.

Protesters are angry that a 43-year-old man, Keith Lamont Scott, was killed by police on Tuesday.

Police said Mr Scott had been repeatedly told to drop his handgun before he was shot.

But his family dispute that narrative and say he was reading a book.

His death sparked violent protests on Tuesday night, leaving 16 officers injured.
