PHOTOS: 1 year after the Capitol riot

It’s been one year since the U.S. Capitol insurrection, a violent attack by Trump supporters that has fundamentally changed Congress and raised global concerns about the future of American democracy.

President Joe Biden spoke at the Capitol on Thursday to mark the first anniversary.

Biden and congressional Democrats began in Statuary Hall, one of several spots where rioters swarmed a year ago and interrupted the electoral count.

See photos from Capitol Hill below.
