Joe Biden's Certification pending as protesters takeover US congress over electoral vote (videos)
Vice-President Mike Pence was ushered out of the senate chamber on Wednesday as protesters laid siege to the US congress during the ratification of the November 3 presidential election.

The protesters trooped to the congress shortly after President Donald Trump encouraged them to do so.

According to the NBC, a police officer on the third floor of the building advised people to take shelter because protesters had got inside.

Senators were locked inside their chamber on the second floor of the Capitol building and protesters wearing Trump “Make America Great Again” hats and carrying flags were seen gathering outside the chamber doors, the news outlet said in its report.
