At least one person has been killed in the U.S after white nationalists clashed with protestors at a far-right march in Charlottesville in Virginia. Video’s posted on social media showed a car ploughing at speed into several slow-moving vehicles, surrounded by a densely packed crowd. Video of car hitting anti-racist protestors. Let there be no confusion: this was deliberate terrorism. My prayers with victims. Stay home. pic.twitter.com/MUOZs71Pf4β€” Brennan Gilmore (@brennanmgilmore) August 12, 2017 Emergency services were pictured treating a number of people who were injured. It is not clear if the death came after a car rammed a crowd of opponents of the far-right rally. The β€œUnite the Right” march was called to protest against plans to remove a statue of Civil War general, Gen Lee, who commanded the pro-slavery Confederate forces in the US Civil War of 1861-65. A state of emergency has been declared. This enables police to mobilise resources. President Donald Trump condemned the violence on Twitter: We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!β€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017
