Security officials testify Capitol rioters ‘came prepared for war’ – BBC News

US Capitol security officials who were ousted in the wake of the 6 January attack on Congress have blamed intelligence failures for the breach.

Testifying to a Senate committee, the officials said that the rioters “came prepared for war” with weapons, radios and climbing gear.

Ex-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said he had prepared for a protest, not “a military-style coordinated assault”.

Four people died after pro-Trump protesters stormed the US Capitol.
