Washington:

The US Capitol advanced is on lockdown, with no entry or exit allowed resulting from an exterior safety risk and folks inside being pressured to shelter in place, in response to a Reuters witness.

The lockdown comes simply days forward of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration and follows the Jan 6 assault on the US Capitol in Washington by extremists and Trump supporters, a few of whom known as for the demise of Vice President Mike Pence as he presided over the certification of Biden’s election victory.
