Reaction from leaders pours in after mob breaks into Capitol

(AP) -- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is among those in the United States and abroad speaking out after a mob of violent rioters made its way into the U.S. Capitol.

Johnson called the scenes "disgraceful" and said: "The United States stands for democracy around the world and it is now vital that there should be a peaceful and orderly transfer of power."

Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne said his country is "deeply shocked."

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka called it an "attempted coup" and "one of the greatest assaults on our democracy since the Civil War."
