US marks anniversary of Capitol riot

US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris addressed the nation on Thursday, marking the anniversary of the deadly attack on the US Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump.
On January 6, 2021, a mob stormed the Capitol building in an effort to halt the confirmation of Biden's victory, fueled by Trump's claims of election fraud. Five people died, and over 130 police officers were injured.

Speaking at one of the sites where Trump supporters violently surged into the US Capitol, President Biden said the US must assure that such a riot "never happens again."

"Democracy was attacked — simply attacked," Biden said.

In a emotionally-charged address, the president recalled the violent images from January 6 — and took aim at his predecessor, Trump.
