Protesters are interrupting the start of current CIA Director Mike Pompeo's hearing in the Senate to be the next secretary of state.
The protesters chanted "No Pompeo" and "No more war." One interrupted Republican Sen. Pat Roberts' opening statement.
The protesters appear to be associated with the Code Pink movement. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker is warning there may be arrests if protesters are disruptive.
The interruptions come as Pompeo's hearing to be top diplomat gets underway. Senators are expected to question him for many hours throughout the day.
Just before the hearing, President Donald Trump wished Pompeo good luck on Twitter. Trump says: "He will be a great Secretary of State!"
