Gun-Control Protest Sparks Chaotic Scenes in US Congress
The protest comes in the wake of the recent shootings in Orlando, the deadliest in modern US history.
Republicans adjourned the House early on Thursday to try to quash the sit-in, switching off the TV cameras.
But about two dozen Democrats remained, streaming speeches live via phones despite breaking rules on broadcasting.
The transmissions via Periscope and Facebook Live were taken up by the C-Span network, which provides continual coverage of Congress. One Democrat congressman, Scott Peters, who provided a feed, said the sit-in was breaking rules anyway.
