In April, the city council voted to remove the bronze statue of pro-slavery Confederate General Robert Lee. He's identified as a 20-year old white man from Maumee, Ohio.

A counter-protester was killed when a grey Dodge Challenger plowed into a crowd, and two Virginia State Police officers were killed when their helicopter crashed later in the day.

In addition to those injured in the auto incident, the Charlottesville Police Department said 15 were wounded in other violence related to the far-right march.

About the vicious vehicle attack, Mayor Mike Signer made the announcement on Twitter, saying he was "heartbroken that a life has been lost here". Altogether 35 people were treated. Friday night, ended with one woman and two state troopers dead after a violent Saturday afternoon.

Some criticised Mr Trump for his seeming reluctance to specifically blame the white supremacists.

"The people of Detroit stand with the people in Charlottesville, Virginia and condemn all acts of hatred, discrimination and violence". His comments were criticised for not specifically denouncing the white supremacists while condemning the "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".

He's calling for a "swift restoration of law and order".

Before the rally could even begin, neo-Nazis, white nationalists and other far-right figures began brawling with large numbers of anti-racism protesters in the streets of the college town. Cory Gardner, Colorado Republican, tweeted early Saturday evening.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have called for peace.

"Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists", Sen. Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted, quote "There is only one side".

The FBI has opened a civil rights investigation into the incident.

Trump says he's spoken with the governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, and "we agreed that the hate and the division must stop and must stop right now".

Ms Bloom later recounted to The Toledo Blade: "I told him to be careful, (and) if they're going to rally to make sure he's doing it peacefully".
