A 79-year-old New Salem man is dead after a crash on Interstate 94 in Morton County....

      NEW SALEM, N.D. (AP) - A 79-year-old New Salem man is dead after a crash on Interstate 94 in Morton County. The Highway Patrol says the pickup truck the man was driving was rear-ended by a sport utility vehicle east of New Salem when the truck slowed for an unknown reason. The pickup went into the ditch and came to rest on its roof. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He wasn't immediately identified.

     EAGLE BUTTE, S.D. (AP) - American Indian tribes have written letters to South Dakota's Public Utilities Commission, expressing their opposition to the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, the Yankton Sioux Tribe and a grassroots group called Dakota Rural Action wrote letters seeking more information about developer TransCanada's compliance with permit conditions.
 
     The tribes say ground-disturbing activity near the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation and the Rosebud Sioux Reservation prompted the letter. It says that if TransCanada's actions are found to be unlawful, the commission should order that construction be stopped. The tribe says the pipeline would run through Great Sioux Nation homelands.
 
     A TransCanada spokeswoman has said previously that its site near the reservation is a pipe yard, one of four being prepared in South Dakota before planned construction next year.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The federal prosecutor's office in North Dakota has been honored for its investigation into an international fentanyl-trafficking operation. The International Association of Chiefs of Police presented the award for preventing transnational crime to U.S. Attorney Chris Myers at its annual conference in Orlando, Florida.
 
     The case is dubbed Operation Denial. It has resulted in charges against 32 defendants, including two men from China accused of separately running chemical labs that produced fentanyl and other illegal opioids that were sold to Americans. The investigation began after an overdose death of a North Dakota man in January 2015. Myers says a team of agents and prosecutors have been working on the case for more than three years.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Facebook says it has purged more than 800 U.S. pages and accounts for spamming users with garbage links and clickbait. Facebook accuses their backers of "coordinated inauthentic behavior" for setting up networks of pages and accounts designed to mislead users about who they are and what they're doing.
 
     The social network says these accounts spread "sensational political content" designed to drive people to ad-laden websites outside Facebook. In the past, such spammers have often focused on celebrity gossip, weight loss remedies and fake iPhones.
 
     The turn toward politics suggests that spammers are learning from the Russian playbook on how to get people riled up and clicking. Facebook has been working to weed out misinformation and election meddling since it acknowledged that Russian agents abused its service in 2016.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Jamestown police are searching for a suspect they believe to be armed and dangerous, and authorities have sent an alert to residents cautioning them not to confront the man. Major Justin Blinsky says an officer tried to stop and arrest 25 year-old Levi Guthmiller on outstanding felony warrants Wednesday evening, but Guthmiller evaded capture by striking the patrol car and speeding away. The vehicle later slid off the road and Guthmiller fled on foot.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman accused of shooting and killing a man a year ago has been convicted of manslaughter. Thirty-nine-year-old Kommika Gregory faced a murder charge in the death of 58-year-old Ronald Thompson on Nov. 16, 2017, at a Minot residence. A jury after five hours of deliberations Wednesday convicted her of a lesser crime of manslaughter, meaning she faces up to 10 years in prison rather than life without parole. She's to be sentenced Jan. 8.
