7-foot non-scalable fence to be placed around US Capitol

US Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy says a 7-foot non-scalable fence will be erected around the Capitol grounds in the wake of the storming of the Capitol by supporters of US President Donald Trump.

McCarthy says the fencing will be up for a minimum of 30 days.

That period encompasses the January 20 inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

MCarthy speaks at a news conference with DC officials.
