More than 100 people were arrested in a chaotic day in North Dakota as local and state police moved in on a camp along highway 1806 near where the Dakota Access pipeline is being built.
Smoke filled the air as tires were set ablaze and police fired pepper spray, rubber bullets while sound canons blared ear-splitting blasts in an effort to push people south of the camp.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of South Dakota say the land where the pipeline is being built is on sacred land.
