Security in charge of defending the US Capitol have blamed faulty intelligence for the reason insurgents were able to storm the iconic building.

Officials, including the former chief of the Capitol Police, pointed their fingers at various federal agencies - and each other - for their failure to defend the building as Donald Trump supporters overwhelmed security barriers, broke windows and doors and sent lawmakers fleeing from the House and Senate chambers.

Five people died as a result of the riot, including a Capitol Police officer and a woman who was shot as she tried to enter the House chamber with lawmakers still inside.
