LIVE: Donald Trump impeached for historic second time over US Capitol riots

Donald Trump

Latest live news updates: The House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to make the first US president ever to be impeached twice, formally charging him in his waning days in power with inciting an insurrection just a week after a violent mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol.

The vote in the Democratic-controlled House was 232-197 following a deadly assault on American democracy, with 10 Republicans joining the Democrats in backing impeachment.

In another news, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation on Wednesday imposed a ban on sale and storage of poultry or processed chicken meat by shops and restaurants with immediate effect, in view of the bird flu situation in the capital. 

Earlier in the day, the Enforcement Directorate arrested former TMC MP K D Singh in a money laundering case. They said Singh has been placed under arrest under sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
