Tribe not satisfied with brief halt to Dakota Access pipeline


FORT YATES, N.D., Sept. 7 (UPI) -- A tribal group protesting a pipeline that is to carry oil from North Dakota said it was disappointed the project was still going forward despite a temporary delay.

Tribal groups are suing federal regulators over permits for the 1,134-mile pipeline because of threats to the Missouri River and other regional water ways. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which examined separately each water crossing, is accused of sidelining tribal interest.

In response to a motion filed by tribal groups over the weekend, a federal judge this week said construction on part of the Dakota Access pipeline must stop until the end of the week. David Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, said in a statement the temporary restraining order was far short of a victory.
