20,000 armed National Guards to secure Biden's inauguration

Jan 14, 2021 08:03 IST

The Pentagon is deploying 20,000 National Guards with lethal weapons in Washington a week ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. The security is being amped up to prevent any violence as experienced on the Capitol Hill last week. Intelligence agencies are receiving information about move to create violence and chaos across the country. As many as 15,000 have already been deployed in and around the Capitol Hill and another 5,000 would be added around the January 20 inauguration. This is now twice the number of American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.
