Curfew imposed in Washington DC
The curfew was imposed as protesters stormed the Capitol Building when the House and Senate met to debate certifying President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election. Mr Trump has called on his violent supporters to go home but repeated his claims that the US Presidential election was stolen.
Earlier, Democrats won two Senate seats in Georgia that tipped control of the Senate in their favour. The Democrats have won control of the Senate after Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated Republican incumbents.
