Seventeen people have been detained outside North Dakota's state Capitol building in Bismarck over the oil pipeline. The area was placed in lockdown for a short while during the protest, local TV reported.

Police said three protesters had refused orders to leave the governor's residence in the grounds of the Capital building on Thursday. Earlier, 14 people were arrested after staging a sit-in in the wing of the capitol.

The grounds were placed in lockdown due to what police said was "unforeseen protest activity," local TV channel KFYR reported. The TV station reported that several people had attempted to hold talks with state Governor Jack Dalrymple.

Those arrested face charges of criminal trespass after their protest in Bismarck, which took place hours after a march closed the route of the controversial pipeline near the small town of Cannon Ball.
More than 500 clergy from around the world also gathered on Thursday at a campfire at the main protest camp as part of an interfaith prayer day.
