USA: 4 persons reported dead in Capitol Hill violence, Congress’ formal certification of Biden victory expected to be finished soon

There are chaotic scenes underway at Capitol Hill in Washington DC, USA. Amidst the chaos, there are reports that an unarmed woman was shot by law enforcement authorities.

Amidst the raging violence and chaos at the US Capital Hill, AP has reported that four people have died so far. A woman who was shot by Capitol police. Three other people have died in ‘medical emergencies’.

As per latest reports, the Senate has rejected the Republicans’ objections to the electoral votes in Pennsylvania. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnel has stated that he believes there will be no more challenges to any other state’s election results. The formal certification of the Congress for Joe Biden’s victory is expected to finish soon.

There are chaotic scenes underway at Capitol Hill in Washington DC, USA. Amidst the chaos, there are reports that an unarmed woman was shot by law enforcement authorities.

As per reports, blood was pouring out of the mouth of the woman draped in the Red, White and Blue. Fellow protesters attended to the woman as can be seen in the video. Meanwhile, incumbent US President Donald Trump has addressed his supporters and asked them to go home.

However, he continued to maintain that the presidential elections of 2020 were “fraudulent” and “stolen” even as he urged his supporters to “go home in peace”. He emphasized peace and law and order in his message. But it is still unclear the extent to which it will have an impact on his supporters.

There are also suggestions being made that Antifa far-left rioters have infiltrated the Trump crowd and have been instrumental in fanning the violence.

But it needs to be asserted that there is no credible evidence as of yet that Antifa were involved in the chaotic scenes at Capitol Hill. Trump supporters are reported to have breached the Capitol Hill and are attempting to hold Capitol Hill at siege.
