North Dakota Governor orders evacuation of some pipeline site protesters

Nov 28 (Reuters) - North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple ordered an emergency evacuation on Monday for protesters at a camp near an oil pipeline due to “harsh winter conditions,” according to a statement from his office.

Demonstrators at a camp on land owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in southern Morton County, who oppose the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline, were ordered leave the camp immediately and not return, according to an executive order signed by Dalrymple.
