Protesters demonstrating against the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota stopped traffic on the bridge over the Mississippi River connecting Lake Street in Minneapolis with Marshall Avenue in Saint Paul.
Demonstrators from each side of the river met at the midpoint on the bridge, where around 150 people carried signs and chanted slogans.
No arrests were made.
