Detroit border crossing dispute

Residents and authorities want alternative to privately owned toll bridge linking US to Canada.

    The United States and Canada share the world's longest undefended border, but a privately owned bridge between the two countries is now the focus of a sharpening dispute.

    An American billionaire has owned and operated the bridge for decades. Now both Canada and the US want to break his control over North America's busiest crossing point.

    Al Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports from Detroit.
