  • Police said the deadly crash happened near the intersection of Fourth and Water streets

Following clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville on Saturday, Virginia governor Terry McCauliffe declared a state of emergency. "I urge all people of good will - go home", Signer wrote on Twitter.

The group surrounded and fought with college students who had gathered to counter them.

Three people were killed and 19 others injured during a white nationalist rally in the USA state of Virginia, turning a day of violent demonstrations into a tragedy, the media reported.

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

Along with a second-degree murder charge, Mr Fields faces three counts of malicious wounding and one count of leaving the scene.

At least 41 people were treated for injuries in hospital following violent clashes between white supremacists and anti-fascists at the rally protesting against the removal of a statue to a Confederate general in the city.

"Go home.You are not wanted in this great commonwealth".

Indian American Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, called on Trump to "denounce what happened this weekend - and the white supremacist hate behind it". "Witnesses tell me a auto plowed into counter-protesters here on Fourth Street, just about two blocks off of Market Street", Rodriguez said.

"On many sides", Trump said on Saturday.

One witness had two friends who were hit by the auto and had to take them to the hospital. "There is no place for you in America", McAuliffe said.

Trump made no reply to a reporter's shouted question whether he had spoken out strongly enough against white nationalists.

"These were white supremacists and this was domestic", said Gardner, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the group charged with helping to get Republicans elected to the Senate.

At least one counter-protest had already mobilized on Saturday night when demonstrators in Oakland, California blocked a freeway and set off fireworks in response to Charlottesville.

They were strong voices inside the President's own party calling out the people who had arranged Saturday's "Unite the Right" demo in Charlottesville.

The remarks drew criticism from some GOP lawmakers as generic and insufficient to the moment, and took exception to the president's use of a kind of equivalence in condemning the violence.
