United States President Donald Trump's failure to condemn white nationalist protestors has been met with fire and fury.
One person has died and 19 have been injured when a car was rammed into a crowd of anti-far right protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe has confirmed that three persons have died, including the victim of the vehicle attack.
According to the Charlottesville Police Department, another 15 people have been injured in violence relating to the far right demonstration.
The violence was carried out at a far right march, which had officially been cancelled by local officials, yet activists wielding white supremacist banners, and confederate flags nevertheless assembled around Emancipation Park, Charlottesville, as did counter-demonstrators such as Black Lives Matter.
'Unite the Right', a white nationalist grouping, had called the march to protest plans to remove a statue of a Confederate, pro-slavery Civil War general.
Video posted on social media shows on a car ploughing into a grouping of cars and densely packed crowd of members of the counter demonstrators.
