A Tense Situation In Rexton

 Black smoke and flames can been seen in Rexton today as vehicles including an RCMP cruiser have been set on fire.

The RCMP are now enforcing a court injunction obtained by SWN Resources and have closed parts of the Highway 134 and Highway 11 in the area.

Snipers can be seen lying in the grass off the side of the road and police, some in riot gear, are coming face to face with the protestors.

Many of the protestors are from First Nations and want SWN Resources to stop seismic testing in the area and leave.
