United States president Donald Trump has been impeached over an incitement to violence that happened last week on Capitol Hill.
The impeachment comes a few days before Trump was to officially leave the White House to allow the president elect, Joseph Biden, to take over.
Trump has refused to accept the outcome of the November 2020 election, claiming that the voting process was manipulated in favour of his rival.
He urged his supporters to march on Capitol Hill, where the Senate was endorsing Biden’s victory.
A number of people died in clashes with the police due to the unprecedented insurrection.
World leaders castigated the violence, with some describing it as a huge blow to democracy around the world.
Trump previously survived impeachment over abuses of power and the alleged involvement of Russia in the previous election in which he overcame Hillary Clinton.
Trump becomes the first president in American history to be impeached twice.
