Video of assault on AP photographer at US Capitol



WARNING: Video contains violent content.

An Associated Press photographer was assaulted by protesters outside the US Capitol on Wednesday. Video of the incident was shot by an AP colleague with their head cam. (Jan. 7)

It shows the photographer wearing protective gear being shoved by protesters until he topples over a wall.

Other protesters then helped him up and guided him through the crowd. The photographer was shaken, but uninjured.

A large crowd of Trump supporters rallied near the White House on Wednesday morning, and the president told them that he would go with them to the Capitol. He didn’t. Instead he sent them off with incendiary rhetoric.

Capitol Police, who are charged with protecting Congress, turned to other law enforcement for help with the mob that overwhelmed the complex and sent lawmakers into hiding. Both law enforcement and Trump supporters deployed chemical irritants during the hourslong occupation of the complex before it was cleared Wednesday evening.

Four people died, including a woman who was shot and killed by police inside the Capitol. Three other people died after “medical emergencies” related to the breach, said Robert Contee, chief of the city’s Metropolitan Police Department.

D.C. police said Thursday that 68 people were arrested, while Capitol police said 14 were arrested, most for unlawful entry. More than 50 Capitol and D.C. police were injured, including several who were hospitalized, officials said.
