On January 6, 2021, supporters of the then US President Donald Trump violently stormed the seat of parliament in the capital Washington. Congress met there to certify the victory of Trump's Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the previous presidential election. Five people were killed in the riots, including a police officer. Trump had recently incited his supporters at a rally by claiming that his election victory had been stolen. Since Jan. 6, more than 850 people have been arrested in connection with the Capitol storm, according to the US Department of Justice.
