The actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested in Texas after she stood in front of an earth-moving machine clearing ground for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

The protest, outside Winnsboro, about 80 miles east of Dallas, is the second time Hannah, 51, has been arrested while protesting against the pipeline. The Keystone XL pipeline would ship more than half a million barrels a day of oil-sands crude from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast.
