Car rams into counter-rally in Charlottesville, US

Charlottesville mayor says at least one dead and several injured in car ramming that hit counter-protesters.

    At least one person has been killed by a vehicle that crashed into a crowd of counter-demonstrators marching against a far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    The rally organised by the ultra-nationalist group, "Unite the Right", was planned to voice opposition to the removal of a Confederate statue and has been described as one of the largest white supremacist events in recent US history.

    But Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was forced to declare a state of emergency after violence broke out in the city.
