Congressional panel lays out findings on 2021 riot at US Capitol

VOA says a U.S. congressional committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol held its first public hearing Thursday evening, with dramatic footage of the violent riot and excerpts of interviews with members of former President Donald Trump’s inner circle.

The two-hour televised hearing, the first in a series of seven scheduled for the month, followed a wide-ranging probe into the attack by Trump supporters after Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to President Joe Biden.

While key details of the committee’s findings leaked in recent months, members of the committee used the hearing to offer what the panel’s chairman, Representative Bennie Thompson, called “a true accounting of what happened and what led to the attack.”

The attack, Thompson said during opening remarks, was “the culmination of an attempted coup.”

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
