Published February 4th, 2021 - 08:26 GMT

US President has paid tribute on Tuesday, 3 February, at a solemn memorial on Capitol Hill to the policeman who was killed after injuries he suffered in an attack by Donald Trump's supporters.

Joe and Jill Biden bowed his head. The president rested his hand on the tabletop bearing the ashes of officer Brian Sicknick, who was given the rare honor of lying at the building housing the United States Congress, according to AFP.

Sicknick was reportedly struck in the head with a fire extinguisher while struggling with the rioters who break through the Congress halls to reject Biden's election victory.
