Reactions to the stunning scenes from Washington continue to stream in from around the globe.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was “distressed to see news about rioting and violence” in Washington and urged the “peaceful transfer of power must continue”.

New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern tweeted that “democracy – the right of people to exercise a vote, have their voice heard and then have that decision upheld peacefully – should never be undone by a mob”.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also called on Trump supporters to “stop trampling on democracy”.

“The enemies of democracy will be pleased to see these incredible images from Washington DC. Inflammatory words turn into violent actions.”

In summary

    • Armed supporters of President Trump stormed the Capitol building and forced a lockdown
    • A woman was shot dead by police and three others died of “medical emergencies”, say police
    • Congress has reconvened after the violence halted a session to certify Joe Biden’s election win
    • Some Republicans were trying to overturn the results in some states but lack sufficient support
    • Trump called on his violent supporters to go home but repeated false claims the election was stolen
    • Earlier, Democrats won two Senate seats in Georgia that tipped control of the Senate their way
    • Meanwhile, the Democrats have won control of the Senate after Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated Republican incumbents
