In Iowa, water protectors have again temporarily shut down construction of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline, after Krissana Mara locked herself to an excavator at a worksite in Keokuk. The group Mississippi Stand says a reporter was also arrested while covering the lockdown. The proposed Dakota Access pipeline would carry fracked oil from the oilfields of North Dakota through South Dakota, Iowa and into Illinois.
