The siege of the Capitol building by Trump supporters in Washington last week.
The Council members of the Borough District of Drogheda have extended their sympathies to the two police officers who lost their lives during the siege of the Capitol Building in Washington.
The councillors unanimously supported a proposal from Mayor Kevin Callan requesting the Council to forward their condolences to the families of Officers Howard Liebengood and Brian Sicknick.
Brian D. Sicknick joined the Capitol Police force in 2008. He died the day after he was overpowered and beaten by rioters from the mob at the Capitol and was struck on the head with a fire extinguisher.
Officer Howard Liebengood had been with the Capitol Police since 2005 and assigned to protect the Senate. The cause of his death has not yet been established.
