U.S. Commemorates Capitol Attack

U.S. Commemorates Capitol Attack

The United States is commemorating the first anniversary of the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC.

On January 6, 2021, as Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden’s election victory, large supporters of Donald Trump stormed the Capitol leaving five persons dead.

More than 725 people have since been charged for attempting to undermine a democratic transition of power.

In a news conference on Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General, Merrick Garland said the U.S. Justice Department has charged more than 725 defendants about the riot. 

He added that the most severe charges have been reserved for people accused of assaulting police officers and of being involved in planning to disrupt the certification of President Biden’s electoral victory.
