Police plan to reinstall US Capitol fence ahead of rally

VOA says Law enforcement concerned by the prospect of violence at a rally in the nation’s capital next week are planning to reinstall protective fencing that surrounded the U.S. Capitol for months after the January 6 insurrection there, according to a person familiar with the discussions.

Though no specific measures have been announced, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hinted during her weekly press conference Wednesday at extra safety precautions for the September 18 rally by saying: “We intend to have the integrity of the Capitol be intact.”

Some lawmakers and top union officials were expected to be briefed on the plan later this week, and another more expansive briefing for the leaders of the House and Senate was planned for Monday.
