Three killed, dozens injured in violent white supremacist rally in Virginia

Images Violence Erupts at White Nationalist Rally in Va

Just before the incident, McAuliffe declared a state of emergency as thousands of white nationalists, neo-Confederates and right-wing protesters, as well as groups that oppose them, clashed at the Emancipation Park, the planned site of the rally.

The driver suspected of plowing his vehicle into counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday is in police custody.

Field Jr, of OH, has been charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count related to leaving the scene.

James Alex Fields Jr., who is now in police custody, allegedly plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting the white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing a 32-year-old woman, hurting dozens more and ratcheting up tension.

President Donald Trump faced bipartisan criticism after suggesting "both sides" were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. During a press conference after the clashes, McAuliffe confirmed that three people have been killed in the city.

Nineteen people are being treated for serious wounds and five are said to be in a critical condition.

Salah scores in six-goal thriller against Watford
On Friday morning Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group issued a statement saying they would not consider any offers for Coutinho.

Among the dead were two people - Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates - on a Virginia State Police helicopter that had been assisting with policing the rally.

President Donald Trump said hate and division have no place in America. It has been going on for a long, long time.

Like other politicians, he noted the First Amendment protects the right to free speech but he also stressed at the same time that "violence, brutality and murder" have no place.

"We want to stand together for love, and against racism, hate, and violence", the post says.

Mr Trump then left, ignoring reporters' shouted questions, including whether he wanted the support of white nationals who have said they backed him or whether the auto crash killing amounted to terrorism.

The violence in Charlottesville - a liberal college town - is a stark demonstration of the growing political divide in the United States, which has intensified since President Trump's election previous year.
