The US Army has informed Congress that it will grant permission to complete the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline near tribal territory.

The notice comes a month after Donald Trump formally backed the project in one of his first acts as US president.

Thousands of predominantly Native American protesters have boycotted the 3.8 billion dollar pipeline's construction in the state of North Dakota.

The Standing Rock Tribe vowed to fight the decision in court.
