[CBC뉴스] 미국 워싱턴 경찰에 따르면 6일(현지시간) 도널드 트럼프 대통령의 지지자 수백명이 미국 의사당을 습격해 총격을 받아 숨지는 사고가 발생했다.

FBI는 "폭발물로 의심되는 장치 두 개를 무장 해제했다"고 밝히기도 했다.

One woman died after being shot as hundreds of President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday (January 6), according to Washington police.

Although the victim was not named and the circumstances were unclear. The FBI said it had disarmed two suspected explosive devices.

The protesters stormed the building in a stunning bid to overturn his election defeat, occupying the symbol of American democracy and forcing Congress to suspend a session to certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory.

Rioters forced their way past metal security barricades, broke windows and scaled walls to fight their way into the Capitol, where they roamed the hallways and scuffled with police officers.

Police struggled for more than three hours after the invasion to clear the Capitol of Trump supporters before declaring the building secure shortly after 5:30 p.m. (2230 GMT).

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered a citywide curfew starting at 6 p.m. (2300 GMT). National Guard troops, FBI agents and U.S. Secret Service were deployed to help overwhelmed Capitol police. Guard troops and police pushed protesters away from the Capitol after the curfew took effect.

Both houses of Congress resumed their debate on the certification of Biden's Electoral College win on Wednesday evening.

It quickly became clear that objections from pro-Trump lawmakers to Biden's victory in battleground states would be rejected overwhelmingly, including by most Republicans, and that the election results would be certified.

"To those who wreaked havoc in our Capitol today - you did not win," Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the session, said as it resumed. "Let's get back to work," he said, drawing applause.

After lawmakers resumed debate on the last-ditch effort to overturn the election results, it was not clear how late into the night the sessions would go.

Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, who lost her re-election bid in one of two Georgia runoffs on Tuesday that secured Democratic control of the Senate, said she had planned to object to Biden's certification but had changed her mind after the events of the afternoon.
