One Dead After Car Strikes Crowd At Virginia White Supremacist Rally

President Trump blames 'many sides' for Charlottesville unrest

After violence caused authorities to stop a white nationalist rally before it began Saturday, a driver plowed his auto into a crowd of protesters.

As the day's event's turned violent, with clashes between antifa and white nationalists and a auto attack on a crowd leaving one dead and a score injured, Duke and other rally participants turned sharply critical of Trump.

The auto ramming killed a 32-year-old woman and wounded 19 people, including some with life-threatening injuries.

Nineteen people are being treated for serious wounds and five are said to be in a critical condition. "We love our city". "I think people need to be more peaceful".

The New York Daily News reported that the deaths were of Virginia troopers.

Video on social media showed a auto at high speed rear-ended another vehicle, then backed up and rammed into pedestrians.

President Donald Trump reacted to the chaotic scene that unfolded Saturday at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., condemning violence and hatred "on many sides". Virginia State Police said injuries ranged from life-threatening to minor.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement late Saturday decrying the "violence and deaths in Charlottesville", and saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department is investigating what local authorities are calling the murder of a 32-year-old woman protester. On many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country. "Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama".

Mr Trump was criticised for taking "hours" to make a statement.

Earlier in the day, thousands of far-right protesters clashed with groups that opposed them ahead of a "Unite the Right" in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement saying, in part, "The vile beliefs of the perpetrators of this violence insult our fundamental American values and must be condemned in the strongest terms".

Jelani Cobb added: "Trump denouncing hate, but in such a way that you don't know if he's talking about white supremacists or the anti-racists in Charlottesville".

"Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts".

They were met by counter-protesters, leading to violence that began Friday night and continued into Saturday.

The vehicle may also have hit another auto.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler organized Saturday's rally to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. "We are strongly, strongly against violence in any way shape or form".

Biden was joined by Bernie Sanders, who also called out Trump for refusing to acknowledge that the violence in Charlottesville was a coordinated effort by "Neo-Nazis".
