The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train carrying unscented propane derailed near Canada's border....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train carrying unscented propane derailed near Canada's border with Minnesota and North Dakota early Tuesday.
 
     Manitoba RCMP media relations officer Tara Seel says the RCMP responded to a train derailment in Emerson at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. She adds no leaks have been detected and there were no injuries.  Seel says the train was carrying unscented propane, prompting the evacuation of approximately 40 people who lived within 110 yards of the site. RCMP says the train crossed into Canada from Minnesota.
 
     Andrew Kirking is the emergency manager of Pembina County on the North Dakota side of the border. He says the train derailed about 100 yards into Canada but did not affect the nearby North Dakota town of Pembina.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Federal attorneys say a report on tribal prosecutions shows continued improvement since a study that criticized the Department of Justice for turning its back on reservation crime. The report shows 2,542 cases were filed in Indian Country in 2013, a 34 percent increase from five years ago when the federal government began its tribal justice initiative. That's down from 3,145 cases brought in 2012, which DOJ officials attributed primarily to reduced budgets and a hiring freeze.
