We're pausing our live coverage on the aftermath of Wednesday's events at the US Capitol. Here's a reminder of the top developments:
- President-elect Joe Biden described the violence as "one of the darkest days in the history of our nation" and blamed President Trump for stoking violence. He added it was "totally unacceptable" police had shown more leniency than in Black Lives Matter protests last year
- Former First Lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday's events "desecrated the centre of American government", adding: "Millions voted for a man so obviously willing to burn down our democracy for his own ego"
- Top Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has led calls for Trump to be removed from office. Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, urged Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, which allows for a transfer of power from the president to the vice-president
- Transport Secretary Elaine Chao has become the first cabinet member to resign over the "traumatic" unrest
- Other former supporters have strongly criticised the president, with former Attorney General Bill Barr saying Trump's actions were a “betrayal of his office and supporters” and Mick Mulvaney announcing he was stepping down from his role as special envoy to Northern Ireland
- Foreign leaders have added to the condemnation, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying Trump was "completely wrong" to incite violence and cast doubt on the election result
- A woman who was shot during the unrest has been named as Ashli Babbitt. Three other people died of "medical emergencies", according to police
