Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the latest actions by protesters on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory are ``extremely concerning.''

Video shared online shows a group of protesters standing on the tracks near Belleville, Ont., as a CN Rail train approaches, then jumping out of the way at the last moment.

A few appear to be throwing items at the train.

Provincial police say fires were also set near and on the tracks this morning.

The prime minister told reporters people should not be endangering their lives and those of others by interfering with the trains.

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair made similar comments earlier today, but said police in the area are managing the situation.
