Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency after fights broke out between armor-clad, shield-carrying white nationalist demonstrators and similarly armed counterprotesters in Charlottesville.

Jelani Cobb added: "Trump denouncing hate, but in such a way that you don't know if he's talking about white supremacists or the anti-racists in Charlottesville".

Later this month, alt-right groups are planning to hold two rallies in Berkeley and San Francisco.

Three people were killed and 19 others injured during a white nationalist rally in the USA state of Virginia, turning a day of violent demonstrations into a tragedy, the media reported.

National media outlets are reporting that at least one person has died, and 19 others were injured Saturday when a vehicle was driven into a crowd of counter-protesters demonstrating against a rally of white nationalists.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides", Trump said at a press conference. You are not wanted in this commonwealth.

In a tweet aimed at President Trump, he wrote: "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name".

"A man from OH was held by police on charges relating to the auto incident, including second-degree murder, according to Martin Kumer, Albemarle Charlottesville's regional jail superintendent".

Kessler said earlier this week that the rally is partly about the removal of Confederate symbols but also about free speech and "advocating for white people". Video footage shows a silver Dodge Charger racing down the narrow street, plowing into pedestrians before slamming into two cars.

"We agree that the hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now", he said as hundreds of white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members gathered in Charlottesville which they described as one of their biggest rally in decades. A 32-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was killed and more than dozens were injured. President Donald Trump tweeted "There is no place for this kind of violence in America". Our message is plain and simple: Go home.

On Friday night, torch-wielding white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus, which was condemned by the university president and other officials.

David Duke, the onetime KKK leader, even claimed that Saturday's rally was about fulfilling promises made by Donald Trump during his campaign.
