U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) SWAT officers entered the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., where protesters from supporters of incumbent American leader Donald Trump had earlier stormed. The NBC News TV channel reported about it.
The TV channel also published video footage showing SWAT officers walking through the congressional corridor.
Earlier, Trump supporters clashed with police near the Capitol in Washington. Protesters stormed the building and surrounded the Senate chamber. The Senate and House of Representatives interrupted a session scheduled to approve the results of the electoral college vote, according to which Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election. Later, one of the protesters was shot in the chest in the U.S. Congress building. Trump himself urged supporters to act peacefully and support the police.
