The US Capitol has been placed into lockdown after a rally by President Donald Trump prompted his supporters to storm it. Congress was in the process of counting the Electoral College votes to confirm Joe Biden’s presidential victory, while Vice President Mike Pence had earlier defied Trump’s push to have the election result overturned. Trump has tweeted for his supporters to "stay peaceful", while there are reports that guns have been drawn inside the House of Representatives.
