Furthermore, two suspected explosive devices were discovered in the headquarters of the Republican Party and the Democratic National Congress.

The device in the Republican headquarters was safely detonated by a bomb squad.

However, he did tell his supporters to go home peacefully.

His victorious opponent in the election, President-elect Joe Biden said: "Let me be very clear: the scenes of chaos at the Capitol do not represent who we are.

"What we are seeing is a small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness. This is not dissent, it's disorder. It borders on sedition, and it must end. Now."

He added: "America is so much better than what we're seeing today."

Congress is expected to ratify Biden's electoral college victory either later today or tomorrow, following the break-up of their sitting.
