Images from insurrection at Capitol show people with links to far-right movements report NYT, Buzzfeed and other fact-checkers
Photographs being shared online of people who stormed the US Capitol “suggest ties to far-right movements”, according to The New York Times. There is no evidence so far to prove that Antifa activists were part of the mob that entered the building on Wednesday, according to fact-checkers from Snopes, PolitiFact, Buzzfeed News and other organisations.
While a pro-Trump mob forced entry into the US Capitol building in Washington, DC, other smaller crowds gathered at statehouses across the country, including those in Kansas, Ohio, Minnesota and California. In Atlanta, senior staffers at Georgia Capitol were evacuated as a precautionary measure as militia members gathered outside the building. Most of the situations were dispersed by late on Wednesday afternoon.
