Protesters supporters of incumbent US President Donald Trump try to infiltrate Congress, but the police disperse them with tear gas and flashbangs.
Earlier it was reported that the protesters managed to break through the fences and enter the building where the Senate sat.
The very meeting of Congress, which was supposed to approve the results of the presidential elections and the victory of Democrat Joe Biden, was suspended.
A group of Republican senators objected to the approval of the electoral vote from the state of Arizona. The chambers of Congress wanted to separately discuss the objections and hold an appropriate vote.
However, the debate was interrupted by protesters breaking through the police cordons. Local media reported that parliamentarians were evacuated to safe locations.
