Clash near Cannon Ball subsides as protesters, law enforcement report Thursday's toll


MORTON COUNTY, N.D. — A standoff between law enforcement officers and Dakota Access Pipeline protesters continued Friday afternoon on a bridge between the protesters’ main camp and the north camp that authorities forced them to leave during a tumultuous and tense confrontation one day earlier.

The Morton County Sheriff’s Department said in an update just before 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, that the officers were holding a line north of the Backwater Bridge.

The bridge and State Highway 1806 remained closed because of debris and damage to the bridge resulting from multiple fires set by protesters, and the bridge must undergo a safety evaluation before it reopens, the department said in a news release.
