Over 535 people charged over US Capitol riot as FBI hunts more suspects 6 months later



The FBI has announced it is still searching for some of the most violent rioters who participated in the deadly Capitol riot six months ago when supporters of former President Donald Trump clashed with law enforcement authorities in a failed attempt to halt the certification of President Joe Biden's election.



On Tuesday night, July 6, the FBI released 11 new videos showing suspects with some of them engaged in hand-to-hand combat with police, a milestone in what has become the largest criminal investigation in U.S. history.



Since January, at least 535 people have been arrested, including 165 who have been charged with assaulting, resisting or interfering with police who battled rioters for hours.







Among the new videos released Tuesday by the FBI, one showed an unidentified man dressed in camouflage, a protective vest and clown mask hurling a pole into the direction of officers as a crowd of rioters pressed forward. Another clip showed an office being pulled to the ground on his back while a bearded man in a black hat and flannel shirt hovered the fallen officer.



The videos were accompanied by an appeal for the public's help in identifying the suspects.
