1. Woman killed protesting the white supremacist rally identified as 32-year-old paralegal.
The woman who was killed when a man ploughed his car into a group of counter-protesters in the U.S. on Saturday has been identified as 32-year-old paralegal Heather Heyer.
Heyer was protesting the white supremacist rally, which was being held in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday afternoon.
She was the only person killed, 19 others were injured (five critically), when James Alex Fields, Jr. 20, allegedly rammed his silver Dodge Challenger through the masses gathered at Emancipation Park in opposition to the rally.
The identification comes after President Donald Trump included the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups in condemning violence, the White House says. Initially, he was criticised for not explicitly condemning white supremacists in the tragedy.
