US President-elect Joe Biden has blasted the "insurrection" of pro-Trump rioters who stormed the US Capitol and he demanded an end to their "siege". Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

The Democrat called on outgoing President Donald Trump to "step up" and repudiate the violence.

In a tweeted video, Mr Trump repeated debunked claims the vote was "stolen", but urged protesters to "go home".

A joint session of Congress confirming electoral college votes has been suspended and forced into recess.

The protesters fought their way past police to breach the US Capitol, shouting and waving pro-Trump and US flags as they roamed through the halls, demanding the results of the presidential election be overturned.

The invasion sent members of Congress scrambling for cover under their seats and donning gas masks as tear gas was fired in the Capitol Rotunda.

A woman who was shot during the riot has died, according to US media.

Federal law enforcement official said two suspected explosive devices were found and were both rendered safe by the FBI and Capitol Hill police.
