3 killed in car ramming at US far-right rally, helicopter crash

"This senseless act of violence rips a hole in our collective hearts", a statement from the Charlottesville city government said.

Fields' mother, Samantha Bloom, has confirmed that her son was attending the rally, stating that she thought the event was for President Trump, not white supremacists. "I thought it had something to do with Trump". A state of emergency was declared.

"There are not many sides to the violence of last night and today - these actions and this speech are a poison and serve to bring us all down to the lowest and most un-American of moments".

In the photo, taken by the New York Daily News, Fields stands with a handful of men, all dressed similarly in the usual Vanguard America uniform of khakis and white polo shirts.

Two state troopers, Lt. H. Jay Cullen and trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates, died when a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed not far from the protests.

"These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism".

James Alex Fields Jr, 20, from OH, was nicked in connection with the horror crash.

"I don't really talk to him about his political views, so I don't really understand what the rally was about or anything".


A group of several hundred demonstrators gathered to decry racism in the wake of deadly violence that erupted at a white nationalist demonstration in Virginia.

He said that if he was still working in the White House, he would not have recommended Trump make the statement he did.

Protesters and counterprotesters started throwing things at one another, including plastic bottles and gas bombs, and at one point the two groups charged one another and there were tussles.

One was killed and dozens were injured amid what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade to protest the city's decision to remove a Confederate monument.

Donald Trump's condemnation of violence and hate includes "white supremacists", the White House has said.

At one point, a vehicle sped forward through a march of counterprotesters, mowing down people, including one woman who was killed.

"This represents a turning point for the people of this country", former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke spoke at the rally, "We are determined to take our country back".
