Footage shows thousands of Trump supporters as they stormed the US Capitol sparking clashes with police on January 6, 2021.

Chaos erupted during a demonstration by MAGA crowds in Washington DC aimed at overturning Joe Biden’s controversial election victory.

Hundreds of demonstrators stormed and looted the Capitol building leading to violent clashes with police in which one woman was shot dead. Dozens of police were also reportedly injured in the violence.

Protesters continued to occupy the Capitol and the National Guard was called in to quell the unrest. President Donald Trump urged his supporters ‘to go home’ but the leader was criticised for encouraging the protests.
