US Congress has certified Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next President and Vice-President of the US.

The electoral votes were approved after both the Senate and the House of Representatives rejected objections to the votes in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.

The normally procedural session of Congress was disrupted on Wednesday when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building. The session resumed and continued through the night after the building was cleared.

Speaking after the chamber resumed its plenary, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell reassured the country that the Senate would not bow to pressure and violence.

“We will not be kept out of this chamber by mobs, thugs or threats. We will not bow to lawlessness or intimidation.” He said.

Meanwhile, President Trump has called on his violent supporters to go home but repeated the claims that the election was stolen.

A woman was shot dead by police and three others died of “medical emergencies”, say police.
