The US Senate has narrowly failed to pass a bill approving the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline.
The Senate voted by 59-41 in favour of the bill, but this was one vote short of the 60 needed to pass it.
The 1,179-mile (1,897km) pipeline would carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to the US state of Nebraska where it joins pipes running to Texas.
