As per reports, a suspicious package was also discovered at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and was evacuated. The package at DNC is yet to be identified. Meanwhile, a woman has been shot by law enforcement authorities whose condition is believed to be critical. Incumbent US President Donald Trump has called for peace and law and order following anarchy at Capitol Hill while maintaining that the election was “fraudulent” and “stolen”.
Trump supporters clashed with law enforcement authorities and stormed Capitol Hill. They have also reportedly entered House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and are reportedly attempting to hold the seat of the US Senate and House of Representatives at siege. Politicians from across the spectrum have condemned the incident of violence.
