White nationalist rally leaves one dead, dozens injured

White nationalist rally leaves one dead, dozens injured

Hundreds of white marchers with blazing torches clashed briefly with counter protesters on the Charlottesville campus of the University of Virginia on Friday, the eve of a rally planned by thousands of white nationalists, media said. More protesters gathered to rally against the right-wing demonstrators.

The peaceful demonstration came hours after three people were killed and dozens injured in Charlottesville when a rally staged by white nationalists turned violent. The driver has been identified as 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. of Maumee, Ohio.

Twenty-year-old James Fields from OH, the alleged driver of the vehicle, is in detention on suspicion of second-degree murder. City officials told The New York Times that a three-car crash took place, injuring several people.

The mother of a man accused of driving into protesters in Charlottesville has revealed she thought her son was at a Donald Trump event - not a far-right one.

"I don't think violence is the correct way to voice your opinion", Haley Wilt said. The two other victims were state troopers who were killed when the police helicopter they were in crashed.

"Shame on you", McAuliffe said at a press conference Saturday.

A 32-year-old woman who had been crossing the street also died when she was struck by a auto driving at high speed that also hit a group of anti-Nazi campaigners, injuring dozens.

U.S. Rep. Trent Franks said President Donald Trump "made it extremely clear" that he condemns the white supremacist violence amid criticism that the president's message wasn't strong enough.

On Saturday, Charlottesville saw a major rally of far-right nationalists dubbed "Unite the Right" held in protest for the removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park. "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism", Sen. He said he was saddened that people were hurt.
