US Capitol on security lockdown ahead of Biden inauguration

Guardian, 19 Jan 2021
The tightest security measures in recent memory are in place in Washington, two days ahead of the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the US.
25,000 National Guard soldiers from across the east coast are stationed in the city. The streets around the Capitol remain eerily empty as all but the most determined protesters have stayed away after the pro-Trump riot at the Capitol on 6 January. 
The FBI has vetted all troops who are guarding the event because of fears of an insider attack at the inauguration.
