FBI warns 'armed protests' being planned at 50 US state capitols

Jan 12, 2021 16:59 IST

The FBI has warned of plans for 'armed protests' at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, stoking fears of more bloodshed after last week’s deadly siege at the US Capitol. An internal FBI bulletin warned, on Sunday, that the nationwide protests may start later this week and extend through Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration. Investigators believe some of the people are members of extremist groups, FBI officials said. The FBI said it wasn’t focused on peaceful protests but 'on those threatening their safety and the safety of other citizens with violence and destruction of property.'
