The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking the public for help identifying more people involved in storming the U.S. Capitol Building during a joint session of Congress on January 6. The FBI released a new wanted poster that includes the photos of ten individuals who are accused of assaulting federal officers and engaging in violence at the U.S. Capitol.
"Anyone with information regarding these individuals, or anyone who witnessed any unlawful violent actions at the Capitol or near the area, is asked to contact the FBI's Toll-Free Tipline at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) to verbally report tips. You may also submit any information, photos, or videos that could be relevant online at fbi.gov/USCapitol. You may also contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate," the poster reads.
Authorities have arrested over 100 people for their role in the riots, which left five people dead, including Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who died from injuries sustained fighting with the protesters. Dozens of people, including at least 50 members of law enforcement were injured.
