Here is a brief overview of the latest developments in the US House of Representatives following the forced entry and vandalism of Trump supporters:
Lawmakers are in the process of verifying Joe Biden’s victory in last November’s presidential election.
The parliamentary process was disrupted after a violent mob stormed President Trump’s office, accusing him of rigging the election.
One woman was shot dead by police and three others died of “medical emergencies,” police said.
Curfew and arrest
At least 52 protesters have been arrested so far, including 47 violators of the curfew.
A large group of armed supporters of President Trump stormed the US Federal Capitol, known as the Capitol, and closed it for security reasons.
After the resumption of the parliamentary process, some state Republican lawmakers tried to reverse the results in their constituencies but failed due to lack of support.
President Trump has called on his supporters to return home. But he reiterated his unproven claim that “the US election was taken away from them.”
