The United States -ALSHARQIYA January 19: The center of the American capital, Washington, on Tuesday, looked like an impregnable fortress, 24 hours before the inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the United States in a ceremony that will be held under heavy security surveillance.
And deployed in Washington National Guard forces will reach 25 thousand on Wednesday in order to ensure the security of a vast "red zone" extending from the Capitol Hill neighborhood, which is within its scope of Congress headquarters, where Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will take the oath to the White House.
The authorities have closed the huge National Mall park, where hundreds of thousands of Americans flock every four years to attend the inauguration.
For days, the authorities banned entry to major public parks, including the National Shopping Center in Washington, closed bridges, and more than a dozen subway stations were closed until the day of the inauguration.
