  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “‘Kill him with his own gun’: Police recount fearing for their lives in Capitol riot” – below is their description.

    Washington DC police officers recalled their experiences of trying to hold off the violent mob who breached the U.S. Capitol during the deadly insurrection last week.

    Officer Daniel Hodges, who was caught in between security doors as Trump loyalists tried to push through, said he thought he was going to die.

    Officer Mike Fanone said he heard rioters shout “kill him with his own gun”, as they assaulted him.

    The Capitol was overrun on January 6 when the mob, armed with metal pipes, pepper spray and other weapons, pushed past the thin police line and soon broke into the building.

    Five people died in the mayhem, which came the day Congress was meeting to vote to affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral win.
