Dakota Access Pipeline: US Army to allow work on final section

The US Army has been ordered to allow the construction of the final section of a controversial oil pipeline.
North Dakota Senator John Hoeven said the Army Corps of Engineers had been directed to allow work under Lake Oahe, a reservoir on the Missouri River.

Native Americans, who have protested against the Dakota Access Pipeline for months, vowed legal action to stop it.

President Donald Trump recently signed an executive order signalling his support for the pipeline.

The US Army Corps of Engineers, which has approval authority, decided last year to explore other routes for the pipeline amid huge protests by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
