LGBT+ activists, senators and members of Congress call for immediate removal of Donald Trump after Capitol riots
Four people have died after riots broke out at the US Capitol, perpetrated by supporters of Donald Trump, in scenes that shocked the world.
An enormous mob of extremists and white supremacists successfully breached the Capitol on Wednesday (6 January) as Congress met to officially count the Electoral College votes of the 50 states and Washington DC – a formality that usually goes by without incident.
Members of Congress were evacuated and the certification process suspended while Washington DC police clashed with violent rioters, resulting in a shoot-out in at least one of the Capitol’s two chambers.
Robert Contee, Washington DC police chief, said a woman died after being shot by US Capitol Police. She was later named as Ashli Babbitt, 35, by NBC News.
Three others died in “medical emergencies”
