[CBC뉴스] 경찰은 선거 패배를 뒤집기 위해 6일(현지시간) 미국 의사당을 습격했던 트럼프 대통령의 지지자들을 해산시키기 위해 플래시 뱅을 사용했고, 의회는 조 바이든 대통령 당선자의 승리를 증명하는 회기를 연기해야만 했다.
Police used flashbangs to disperse supporters of U.S. President Trump who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday (January 6) in a bid to overturn his election defeat, forcing Congress to postpone a session that would have certified President-elect Joe Biden's victory.
Police declared the Capitol building secure shortly after 5:30 p.m. (2230 GMT), more than three hours after it was breached.
The chaotic scenes unfolded after Trump, who before the election refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he lost, addressed thousands of protesters, repeating unfounded claims that the contest was stolen from him due to widespread election fraud and irregularities.
It was the most damaging attack on the iconic building since the British army burned it in 1814, according to the U.S. Capitol Historical Society.
