The Big Story, broadcast every weekday at 5.30pm on Facebook and YouTube, has reporters and senior editors discussing the top stories of the day.

The show is helmed by multimedia correspondent Hairianto Diman and assistant video editor Olivia Quay, and airs live from ST's digital studio.

In Thursday's (Jan 7) show, foreign editor Bhagyashree Garekar discusses the events that unfolded in Washington, DC. Supporters of President Donald Trump had marched into the United States Capitol building, interrupting a Congress session to formally declare President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the November election.

The large mob, donning "Make America Great Again" merchandise and holding confederate flags, pushed through barricades to enter the building. World leaders and US lawmakers have criticised Mr Trump for his hand in the matter, and expressed their disappointment over the protest.
