Mayor Garcetti Comments On Violent Events In Charlottesville

A group of alt-right activists marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville chanting

Federal law enforcement authorities have started a civil rights investigation into a deadly auto crash in Charlottesville that left one protestor dead and several others injured.

The person who died when a vehicle smashed into the crowd, there were also the pilot and a passenger in a state police helicopter that crashed outside the city, Xinhua quoted Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe as saying.

He then wrote: "There is no place for this kind of violence in America".

On Saturday, Charlottesville saw a major rally of far-right nationalists dubbed "Unite the Right" which subsequently led to violent clashes between the demonstrators and counter protesters.

The US President Donald Trump has condemned hatred "on many sides" and "all that hate stands for" in the wake of reports of the violent gathering.

The events on Saturday took place after dozens of white nationalists carrying torches held a rally in Charlottesville on Friday, where they were seen using Nazi salutes.

Australia's Sally Pearson bounced back from two years of injury hell to reclaim the 100 metres hurdles world title in London . American veteran Dawn Harper Nelson was second, .04 seconds behind, and Pamela Dutiewicz of Germany took bronze in 12.72.


Susana Martinez said Saturday she was asking her state residents to pray for the victims in Charlottesville and to condemn "the white supremacists responsible for this cowardly attack". Two police officers were later killed while trying to assist in operations to quell the violence, after their helicopter crashed.

"Go home. You are not patriots". Some have called on the president to specifically call out the white supremacists, white nationalists, Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis, rather than speak in general terms.

However Herring joins several other lawmakers, including Republicans, who criticized Trump for failing to label the violence as white nationalism and for condemning violence "on many sides".

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer called the killing of a 32-year-old woman and the injury of others by a vehicle at a rally in the city a "terrorist attack with a auto used as a weapon".

The violence we've witnessed today is not who we are as a country. "Lets come together as one!"
