More arrests made after riots at the US Capitol


Federal prosecutors have charged three individuals in connection with the riot at the US Capitol, the Department of Justice announced, including a man seen on video carrying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's lectern and another wearing a bearskin headdress. CNN's Evan Perez reports.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, "we will not be diverted" from the Electoral College vote count after protesters stormed the Capitol building in an "assault that was made on our Democracy."
It began with the President rallying his supporters to march on the Capitol. They did exactly that, but went much further - ransacking offices and parading on the Senate floor.
