There are absolutely unbelievable scenes underway in the United States of America. As lawmakers count electoral votes certifying Joe Biden as President-Elect, supporters of incumbent President Donald Trump have stormed Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Capitol Hill is where the US Senate and House of Representatives are seated at.
Congressmen have had to be evacuated as supporters hold Capitol Hill at siege.

Trump supporters have also breached the US Senate Chamber and have taken over the gallery. Nothing even remotely close to this sort has been witnessed in recent memory.
