Two Virginia state policemen were killed on Saturday when a helicopter in which they were riding crashed after assisting in efforts to quell clashes between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville.

James Alex Fields of Ohio's arrest was confirmed by the local jail superintendent and he is currently being held without bail for the murder of a 32-year old woman.

In San Francisco, people reacting to the events in Charlottesville gathered in Union Square. "We are praying for the victims and their families, and for the first responders who are on the scene working to keep Virginians safe".

The University of Virginia Health System said 20 people were hospitalised after the car ploughed into the group of people protesting near a popular pedestrian mall in the college town.

The man driving the vehicle is in custody, Thomas said, and police were treating the incident as a criminal homicide investigation.

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".

Several hundred protesters were marching when the car appeared to deliberately drive into a group of them, The Associated Press reported.

Herring previously tweeted a picture of the "Unite the Right" demonstrators surrounding counter-protesters at a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee at a park in Charlottesville. "It's a wrong thing all in itself and it's something we should reject in the strongest terms".

Some didn't think Trump did enough to condemn white supremacists.

The 'Unite the Right' rally was declared an unlawful assembly by Virginian authorities.

Trump addressed the violent protests from his family company's golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday.
