US: Charlottesville deeply scarred one year after deadly protests

The protest, which degenerated into violence, was against the removal of a Confederate statue, a cause celebre of the US 'alt-right', and ended with the murder of an antiracist counterprotester.

    A state of emergency's been declared in the US city of Charlottesville - in advance of the anniversary of a far-right protest that turned deadly.

    In a tweet, US President Donald Trump condemned all types of racism and acts of violence.

    But a year on, the city's still deeply scarred by what happened at last year's the Unite the Right rally.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports.
