US President Donald Trump has blamed “many sides” for the violent clashes between protesters and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, that’s left three people dead and 35 injured.
James Alex Fields, a 20-year-old man from Virginia, has been arrested and is accused of driving his car into a crowd of people who were peacefully protesting against a white nationalist rally.
The controversial “Unite the Right” march was organised to protest the removal of a statue honouring General Robert E Lee, commander of the Confederate Army in the 19th-century American Civil War.
A 32-year-old woman has been confirmed dead, while the details of the other fatalities are yet to be released.
The car attack occurred around 1pm on Saturday, soon after a state of emergency was declared in the city.
