Iowa regulators approve the pipeline, making it the fourth and final state to grant permission. "New energy infrastructure, like the Dakota Access Pipeline, is being built with the latest safeguards and technology". The Cheyenne River Sioux later join the lawsuit as plaintiffs.

He said thousands of people across the country, and millions around the world, had been moved by the plight of the protesters, who had fought not only for the safety of the reservation's water source, but also for the civil rights of indigenous people. The total has since surpassed 600, including actress Shailene Woodley and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein. He'd never organized a protest before, Pomer said. One officer was injured when struck in the head with a rock.

North Dakota Senator John Hoeven said earlier this week that the Acting Secretary of the Army Robert Speer informed him that he has directed the Corps to grant the easement needed to complete the DAPL. If approved, construction in the disputed territory could resume before the Army Corps complete an environmental impact analysis. Boasberg, the federal judge, rejects an ETP request to stop the study.

Egypt vs Cameroon AFCON Final
The Lions were dealt a big blow when a number of senior players retired from the national team just days before the tournament. That's why the players who are on the bench keep motivation. " Cameroon is a very strong and organised team".

In letters to House and Senate members disclosed Tuesday in a court filing, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army Paul D. Cramer said that he issued the easement within 24 hours, citing President Trump's memorandum January 24 to expedite the Keystone XL and Dakota Access projects.

In a letter to Congress announcing the decision, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army Paul Cramer cited the president's memorandum, saying that "consistent with the direction" in the memo, his agency would "waive its policy to wait 14 days after Congressional notification before granting an easement". The Army says it will do so within as soon as 24 hours.

The Army Corps also told the court that it will no longer complete an intensive environmental impact statement on the pipeline, an action the Obama administration chose to take in December that would have delayed the project for potentially a year or more.
